Another Trump-related group has endorsed Derrick Evans for Congress in West Virginia’s 1st District. Evans faces incumbent Carol Miller. President Trump had endorsed Miller in her last election. Last month Donald Trump ally and My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell also endorsed Evans.
Veterans for Trump in West Virginia is led by Joe Early. Early is also a candidate for Congress in West Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District.
The announcement from Veterans for Trump is here:
CHARLESTON, W.Va. – July 11, 2023 – PRLog — At Veterans for Trump, we rarely endorse against a conservative Incumbent, however, Carol Miller has not yet announced she will run nor has she endorsed President Trump for 2024. Carol Miller’s voting record shows 11% of the time she has agreed with Joe Biden. In contrast, take America First fighters like Lauren Boebert who voted only 3% of the time with Biden or Andrew Clyde at 4%. Significantly Carol Miller voted for a waiver allowing Lloyd Austin to become secretary of defense which has been a disaster for our military and the world, Lloyd Austin should have resigned after the Afghanistan collapse.
“Derrick Evans is a January 6th patriot who is a victim of the weaponization of our government against conservatives. Evans is the only J6th patriot running for Congress. We need Evans in the house to speak for the other victims of J6 and push back on the abuse of the rule of law by the three letter agencies and Soros prosecutors” Said VFAF Founder Joshua Macias who recommended the endorsement to the board.
“Derrick Evans has shown that he is an American Patriot who is willing to fight for our Constitutional Republic. We need fighters to combat our enemies, domestic or foreign” said Attorney Jared Craig Veterans for Trump ambassador
Derrick Evans is a lifelong West Virginian. He was born in Huntington, WV and raised in Wayne County, WV. Derrick received a Bachelor of Arts from West Liberty University where he earned NCAA First Team All-American honors as a captain of the football team while also being a contributing member of the men’s track team.
Before politics, Derrick was a conservative and pro-life activist whose passion for ending abortion led to numerous unborn lives being saved. Derrick also helped to secure legal support for the adoption of each child whose mother chose adoption.
Derrick was first elected to the West Virginia House of Delegates in 2020 as he became the first Republican to win his District in over 98 years. At the time it was a multi-member House District almost the size of the current WV State Senate District. Derrick won in a landslide victory.
“I’m honored to have this endorsement. I’m proud to support our military members both on and off the battlefield. Our current congresswoman voted to force our military members to receive the COVID vaccine or leave the military. That’s a total disgrace to our military and a slap in their face. I am pushing for them to be reinstated with back pay, and codify their religious freedom to prevent this from ever happening again” said Derrick Evans from his home in Wayne County, WV.
