(FreedomBeacon.com)- After Ohio Republican Congressman Anthony Gonzalez joined nine other House GOP in voting to impeach President Donald Trump in late January, former Trump White House aide and Cleveland native Max Miller announced that he would launch a primary challenge against Gonzalez in the upcoming Midterms.
In February President Trump immediately offered his “complete and total support” to Miller’s possible primary run. And this past weekend, Mr. Trump traveled to the Cleveland area and held a “Save America” rally in part to support Miller’s campaign.
At Saturday’s rally, Miller made the case for replacing Gonzalez whom he said is ineffective at pushing back against the radical Democrats.
Miller told the enthusiastic crowd that Biden’s “disastrous first few months” may have been a little less bad if it weren’t for Republicans like Gonzalez “who continue to betray us in Washington DC.”
Miller accused Gonzalez of seeking approval from both Nancy Pelosi and the corporate news media that always promote Republicans who side with the Democrats.
He attacked Gonzalez’s inconsistent positions on immigration, amnesty and supporting “forever war.” Miller, on the other hand, vowed to ignore the DC establishment and listen to the people in his district.
Saying he didn’t care what Pelosi or the DC swamp or the media say or the “turncoat Tonys, wokes, PACs say” Miller promised that he would only care what “all of you here tonight say.”
In his stump speech, Miller echoed Trump’s America First agenda, vowing to protect and prioritized American jobs while fighting to advance the same trade policies President Trump fought for in office. He vowed to defend gun rights, fight Big Tech censorship, “safeguard our elections” and push for term limits for Congress.
As with most of the so-called “rust belt,” Ohio is solidly MAGA Country. Trump defeated Biden in Ohio by over eight points in the 2020 election. Miller’s position is on solid ground going forward. And no doubt both the former President’s endorsement and last weekend’s rally will give his primary challenge the boost it needs.
