Today, Wesley Hunt touted an endorsement from Rep. Steve Scalise - the second-ranking Republican in the House who over the weekend refused to admit that the 2020 election wasn't stolen, choosing instead to cater to Trump's wishes and place doubt (without any evidence) on the election results.
Wesley Hunt has spent his entire political career ducking and dodging the Texans he aims to represent while cozying up to the Washington swamp creatures and political insiders bankrolling his campaign. In light of Scalise's endorsement and troubling refusal to admit the legitimacy of the 2020 election, Wesley Hunt must make it clear that he stands with American democracy - not his party leadership.
Texans deserve to know: Will swamp creature Wesley Hunt denounce extremist politics and admit the 2020 presidential election wasn't stolen, or will he join his party leadership in promoting the Big Lie?
"Texans deserve better than the toxic lies and divisive agenda of Wesley Hunt," said DCCC spokesperson Monica Robinson. "Hunt has spent his entire political career ducking and dodging the Texans he hopes to represent. He must decide: Will he support his party leadership in spreading dangerous lies about the 2020 election, or will he denounce their extremist politics?"
