As early voting begins in the Republican primary election in Texas, former President Donald Trump has issued a series of endorsements of candidates running for the Texas Legislature.

In a series of posts on Truth Social on Tuesday, Trump revealed the endorsements, which included four challengers to incumbent members he called “RINOs” (Republicans in Name Only).

Those candidates include:

Mike Olcott, challenging State Rep. Glenn Rogers (R–Staford) in House District 60

Helen Kerwin, challenging State Rep. DeWayne Burns (R–Cleburne) in House District 58

Alan Schoolcraft, challenging State Rep. John Kuempel (R–Seguin) in House District 44

Liz Case, challenging State Rep. Stan Lambert (R–Abilene) in House District 71

Trump gave his “complete and total endorsement” to each candidate, citing their opponents’ votes to impeach Attorney General Ken Paxton and opposition to school choice as reasons for doing so. 

Additionally, Trump endorsed Brent Hagenbuch for the open Senate District 30 being vacated by retiring State Sen. Drew Springer (R–Muenster).

The latest round of endorsements come just a few weeks after Trump endorsed David Covey, who is challenging House Speaker Dade Phelan in House District 21.

Early voting is ongoing in the Republican primary through March 1. Election Day is March 5.
