Election integrity champion Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers (R) announced on Monday her endorsement for retired Green Beret and Gold Star husband Joe Kent, who is running as a Republican for Congress in the 3rd District of the State of Washington.
Kent is running against Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler (R) who voted to impeach 45th President Donald J. Trump after the January 6 event unfolded at the U.S. Capitol.
“I endorse [Joe Kent] for Congress in #WA03. He is primarying a RINO – Rep. Jamie Herrera Beutler – who voted to impeach President Trump,” Senator Wendy Rogers wrote on Twitter Monday afternoon.
“He is fundraising well and is endorsed by President Trump,” she highlighted.
“He is a retired Infantryman, Ranger, and Green Beret who served in our great United States Army. But even better, he is an #AmericaFirst patriot with a backbone,” the former U.S. Air Force pilot expressed.
“I encourage everyone to support him and get behind his campaign,” Senator Rogers urged. “His voice in DC is needed now more than ever”. Continued Below
