Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (R-CA-42) released the following statement regarding Donald Trump:
“For all of my life I have supported and fought for conservative principles, Republican candidates and a safer, more prosperous future for our country. Donald Trump is our presumptive nominee and I intend to support him. Donald represents the populist wing of the Republican Party. Donald is a disruptor and Washington certainly needs that. He has received a record number of votes in the GOP primaries. House Republicans are conservative reformers. We hold a record number of seats. Winning elections and advancing conservative causes works best when we are adding and multiplying, not subtracting and dividing.
On November 8, 2016 I hope all Republicans, a majority of independents and a large number of free-thinking Democrats will unify to prevent Hillary Clinton from carrying out a third term of President Obama’s damaging policies.”
