Former President Donald Trump plans to campaign for Republican Representative Mary Miller from Illinois at an event next week, days before she faces Republican Representative Rodney Davis in a primary to retain their seats in the United States House.
Trump endorsed Miller in January, saying she “does a fantastic job representing the people of Illinois.”
The event takes place in Mendon, Illinois on June 25, three days before the Illinois primary.
Shortly before the campaign event was announced, Miller told ‘Just the News, Not Noise’ that she had similar views to the former president regarding equal television time to allow for opinions. opposites.
“We’re tired of the media pushing the agenda and not giving people the same time to discuss. We want a marketplace of ideas, and they’re blocking ideas; they’re censoring us. And we wouldn’t have the weak incompetent man sitting in the Oval Office if it weren’t for a corrupt media,” she explained.
Trump endorsed Miller after Davis did not object to certification of the 2020 presidential election results and voted to establish a truly bipartisan committee on Jan. 6, a proposal that ultimately fell through.
Miller lives in Oakland, Illinois, which is now technically in Republican Rep. Mike Bost’s District 12. Rather than run against popular pro-Trump Bost, she decided to challenge Davis.
The blue-led redistricting in Illinois removed two Republican-leaning seats and added two Democratic-leaning seats, FiveThirtyEight observed. This pitted Davis, who represented Illinois in Congress for nearly a decade, against Miller, a freshman congresswoman.
Shortly after news broke of Trump’s rally with Miller, Davis responded with a statement.
“I’m proud of my conservative record of working with Trump when he was in office, and I won’t turn away from it. My focus is on winning this campaign, firing Nancy Pelosi and reapplying the many political successes .that we had when Trump was president, like building the wall, cutting taxes and making America energy independent again,” he wrote.
“As future House Administration Chairman, I will also focus on the investigation of the security breaches leading up to January 6, whether Speaker Pelosi played a role in those breaches. and about holding his fake circus of the special committee accountable,” he explained.
“I hope President Trump and Republican voters are aware of Mary Miller’s baggage, including a convicted pedophile who serves as her personal driver, her rhetoric encouraging illegal immigration, her voting with the socialist squad to defund the “army and its close ties to an anti-Trump Super PAC. Time and time again, Mary Miller has put America last in Congress,” Davis concluded.
Miller has accused Davis to be a Republican in name only and to support the Red Flag laws. However, the gun control accusation has been called “completely false and misleading” by local CIProud.com, and she is facing an ethics investigation into said attack ad.
