The Latest: Trump gets behind GOP congressman from Kentucky
WASHINGTON (AP) – The Latest on President Donald Trump (all times local):
President Donald Trump says Republican Andy Barr, a Kentucky congressman, is a “fantastic guy” whose vote Trump needs to make America great again.
Trump is heading to Kentucky later Saturday to campaign for Barr, who’s seeking re-election to a fourth term.
Barr is facing a strong challenge from Democrat Amy McGrath, a former Marine fighter pilot.
Trump tweets before the trip to Kentucky that Barr is strong on crime, tax cuts, the military, veterans and the Second Amendment.
Trump adds that McGrath “will NEVER vote for us” and that Barr has “my Strongest Endorsement.”
