Skip to comments.Trump endorses Rep. Mary Miller against Rep. Rodney Davis despite pleas from leadership not to get involved in primary

Former President Donald Trump on Saturday endorsed freshman Rep. Mary Miller of Illinois against another sitting House Republican, bucking the advice of GOP leadership.
Shortly after Trump's endorsement, Miller, who was left without a seat after the state's redistricting process, announced she would run in the state's newly drawn 15th District, where GOP Rep. Rodney Davis is seeking reelection.
"President Donald Trump inspired me to run in 2020 because our country needs principled conservatives in Congress who always put America First," Miller said in a statement on Saturday. "Today, President Trump is endorsing me because I am a conservative fighter who is not afraid to take on the DC swamp."
Miller, a member of the hardline House Freedom Caucus, recently caused a stir within the Republican conference for spreading misinformation about a vaccine records bill and an annual defense policy bill that many House Republicans voted for.

Good for Trump!
Mary Miller is my rep and I would vote for her regardless.
You had me at “despite pleas from leadership”
Misinformation says who?
They never seem to find Democrats guilty of same.
Indeed...when CNN discusses Miller with negative comments as they did it is a clear sign that Trump is right.
Trump IS the leadership.
Leadership for who, the Left?
The GOPe and the RNC should cease to exist, unless they are
willing to support different end goals from today’s Left.
Every Illinois Republican Representative except Mary Miller turned on POTUS 45.
GO MARY! Drain the swamp.
GOPe = DNC = Deep State = UniParty = Communists
Sure...they all wear different hats, tell different lies to their unwashed constituencies, but they all have the same goals and agenda...and it sure as heck isn to MAGA.
despite pleas from leadership
***How do we replace this supposed “leadership”?
Trump just sent a message to McCarthy and GOP House Leadership.
Cross me and my voters will Steam Roll you.
Haha, yes, when I saw that I thought, “must be a terrific choice.”
Good move by Trump.
CNN saying that a person was lying is a guarantee that the person was telling the truth.
The “leadership” always chooses the most liberal republican possible. Good for Trump! I second this statement. President Trump endorses America First candidates.
The Swamp Creatures endorse those that will perpetuate the Status Quo and perpetuate The Swamp to their benefit regardless of what that does to the American People and Our Constitution or our Country.
RINO’s, or as many here call them, Democrat Lite, is a real and present danger to our country as founded.
Melanie Zanona, CNN ConCerN troll.
Trump has spoken and we need to donate to Miller
Don’t trust the endorsement because Trump says so....
But in this case, she is a solid 100 (A+) Liberty Score, and he is a dismal 51 (F). Gold standard.
