Susan received my Complete and Complete Testimonial“, Mr. Trump wrote in the endorsement statement released through the Committee for Political Action to Save America (Save America PAC) on 26/4.

Before the election on May 1, Democrats were quite confident to overturn the seat of the House of Representatives in District 6, Texas because in the 2020 presidential race here, Mr. Biden won Mr. Trump even before Four years, Mr. Trump has beaten Hillary Clinton a long way.
The failure of the Democratic Party this time bodes well for the Republicans in the 2022 midterm elections when the party, led by former President Trump, has ambitions to regain majority in the House of Representatives and both. The Senate.
