President Donald Trump tweeted his support for GOP candidate Ron Estes on Tuesday morning. Estes is running against Democrat Jim Thompson to fill the CIA Director House seat in Kansas’ 4th District.
Estes currently serves as the Kansas state treasurer.
According to The Hill, although Trump won this district by nearly 30 points in November, the upcoming election is tighter than expected for Republicans. Senator Ted Cruz also visited the 4th District on Monday to rally behind Estes.
In his tweet, the president said: “Ron Estes is running TODAY for Congress in the Great State of Kansas. A wonderful guy, I need his help on Healthcare & Tax Cuts (Reform).”
