GOP frontrunner Donald Trump obtained congressional endorsements on Wednesday from two Congressmen.
Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) said he would support Trump as the Republican nominee, according to Politico.
In an interview on Wednesday, Hunter told POLITICO that Trump has the strength needed for the job. ‘We don’t need a policy wonk as president. We need a leader as president,’ Hunter said, adding that he has told his colleagues much of the same thing. “I’m in, and I’ve been in,” he said in a telephone interview.
Duncan said he agrees with Trump on border security and manufacturing.
“I don’t think Trump wants my endorsement,” Hunter told Politico. “And that’s one reason why I like him.”
“I’ve liked Trump since the beginning,” Hunter added.
“I think you have more Trump supporters in Congress. They just have to come out of the closet, so to speak,” Hunter hinted.
Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) also put his support behind Trump, saying Trump has “guts and fortitude.”
