We talk again today with Congressman John Shimkus, as he talks about Donald Trump, the Presidential race and potential effect Trump’s campaign could have on other Republican candidates. Shimkus says he supports Trump and says it’s an easy choice for him—but he says it’s not an easy choice for some of his Republican colleagues in some areas. But, Shimkus wonders if many voters really see Trump as a true Republican.
After defeating State Senator Kyle McCarter in the primary in the spring, Shimkus does not have an opponent for the general election. Shimkus will be re-elected for serve an 11th term in the U.S. House of Representatives. We will talk more with Congressman Shimkus coming up on Monday during NewsCenter.
