Rep. Kevin Yoder endorses Donald Trump – who else?
Topeka, KS – Rep. Kevin Yoder endorses Trump; Kansas awaits answers from Jenkins, Huelskamp, Pompeo, Moran, and Roberts.
Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump has employed hate and bigotry as his platform. Today, we face a sobering reality: Donald Trump is the presumptive GOP nominee.
This man is a danger to our country and to its people. He has neither the temperament nor the judgment to lead the United States. He’s brazenly attacked immigrants, women, and countless other groups, even as he refused to disavow the support of David Duke and white supremacist groups. Our own Kansas Representative Kevin Yoder of the 1st Congressional District announced his support for Trump yesterday. His district did not vote for Trump in the caucuses, nor did most of Kansas.
“Right here in our state, we’ve seen the devastation that the GOP can inflict firsthand – we’re living it every day. We can’t have our elected federal officials supporting someone who will further the divisive atmosphere and encourage hatred and violence,” said KDP Executive Director Kerry Gooch. “A vote this year for Kevin Yoder is a vote for Donald Trump.”
The Kansas Democratic Party calls on our remaining officials Sen. Pat Roberts, Sen. Jerry Moran, Rep. Tim Huelskamp (CD 1), Rep. Lynn Jenkins (CD 2), Rep. Mike Pompeo (CD 4): Will you support Donald Trump for president?
Kansans deserve to know.
