Rep. Jeff Miller endorses Donald Trump



U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller, chairman of the VA committee, today endorsed Donald Trump, the latest sign that the GOP front-runner is beginning to pick up support from Washington.

"Donald Trump is the only person who has what it takes to shake up the status quo and entrenched bureaucrats in Washington D.C.," Miller said in a statement.  "I am more and more convinced that he has the ability to reach in and right the wrongs in the Department of Veterans Affairs once and for all.

“America needs Donald Trump and his conservative agenda to shore up and secure our borders and to rebuild our military. I stand today with Donald Trump, and l support his candidacy for President.”

Miller recently attended a Capitol Hill meeting with Trump. The longtime panhandle lawmaker has said he will not seek another term.
