President Donald Trump endorsed Wyoming Republican gubernatorial candidate Foster Friess Tuesday afternoon, giving voters a list of reasons as to why they should vote for him.
Friess, who faces five opponents in the state’s Republican primary, already received an endorsement from Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., as well as former Republican Sens. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and Rand Paul of Kentucky.
Trump said voters should vote for Friess because he is “strong on Crime, Borders & 2nd Amendment,” also adding that Friess “Loves our Military & our Vets.”
To the incredible people of the Great State of Wyoming: Go VOTE TODAY for Foster Friess – He will be a fantastic Governor! Strong on Crime, Borders & 2nd Amendment. Loves our Military & our Vets. He has my complete and total Endorsement!

Although already ahead in the polls, Trump’s endorsement will likely help Friess secure a spot in the general election. (RELATED: Republican Wyoming Gubernatorial Candidate Foster Friess Surges To FIRST In Polls)
