President Donald Trump endorsed Rep. Paul Cook, R-Apple Valley in his general election race against a supposed Republican (and convicted criminal) in California’s 8th District, which includes a large part of San Bernardino County, as well as Inyo and Mono counties.
In his endorsement, Trump highlighted Cook’s record of military service, his support for strong borders, his support for the tax cut plan, and his tough-on-crime record.
Cook is the only candidate in the race who supported Trump’s successful tax cut plan; Cook is the only candidate in the race without a criminal record; and he is the only candidate in the race with a record of military service.
Cook stated, “President Trump knows what’s important to America and which candidates are aligned with him. I’ve helped him fight to make and keep our country great, and I’m thankful for his endorsement and for what it represents.”
