Yesterday was a BIG day for President Trump.
Of course, you probably didn't hear about it from the mainstream media, which is why we're here to give you the details.
Former Trump White House Physician Ronny Jackson has officially WON his Texas Run-Off by a 55.6% to 44.4% margin.
Why does this matter?
Well… Democrats and their allies in the media have been salivating at the thought of turning Texas blue or purple.
There are numerous polls showing Biden and Trump virtually tied in Texas.
In fact, some of these polls suggest Biden will win Texas!
But Ronny Jackson's run-off election suggests that Trump is still the STRONG favorite to win the great state.
Jackson based his entire run on his strong relationship with President Trump… and according to voters, it worked!
More details on this stunning development below.
From the New York Times:
Jackson's 10-point victory in Texas highlights exactly how popular Trump remains in the state.
Reports indicate that the Biden campaign is beginning to advertise in Texas with hopes of flipping it...
But that also means that the Biden campaign is taking resourses AWAY from other swing states like Florida and Ohio.
The New York Times confirms that Jackson's victory can be attributed to the popularity of President Trump:
Dr. Ronny L. Jackson, the former White House physician with no political experience who ran a campaign based on his close relationship with President Trump, won a Republican runoff election for a House seat in Texas on Tuesday night, effectively stamping his ticket to Congress next year.
Dr. Jackson’s victory in the 13th Congressional District over Josh Winegarner, a lobbyist who had the backing of the cattle industry he represented and the man he’s seeking to replace, was hailed by the Trump campaign as a triumph for the president who endorsed him and for the Trump re-election campaign that propped him up.
Tim Murtaugh, the Trump campaign’s communications director, called the victory “a clear testament to the power and value of President Trump’s endorsement and support.”
It was something of a comeback for Dr. Jackson, a retired Navy rear admiral who is now likely to represent one of the most conservative districts in the country. He left the West Wing in December after becoming Mr. Trump’s unlikely choice to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, but he had to withdraw his name from consideration amid allegations related to his professional conduct.
After serving for 25 years in the military and moving home to Texas, Dr. Jackson hoped to leverage his Washington connections to win elected office and make a fresh start, running in a crowded Republican primary to replace Representative Mac Thornberry, who announced last fall he would not seek re-election after holding his seat for more than a quarter of a century. But Dr. Jackson made a series of novice mistakes that could have derailed any congressional campaign.
Dr. Jackson relied on a “horse doctor” with a full-time job to run his campaign. The candidate’s wife, Jane, doubled as his chauffeur, driving him around the Panhandle-encompassing district, and she even took on the job of putting up lawn signs and replacing them after they were defaced. Before the coronavirus put a stop to face-to-face campaigning, the couple wasted hours knocking on doors during work hours, when no one was home. And they agreed to attend events where the majority of the crowd was from neighboring Oklahoma and couldn’t vote for Dr. Jackson even if they were impressed with his pitch about his rare access to the Oval Office.
But after Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son, and Kimberly Guilfoyle, his girlfriend and a top fund-raising official for the president’s re-election campaign, realized that Dr. Jackson’s campaign was in trouble, they asked two senior members of Mr. Trump’s re-election campaign, Justin Clark and Bill Stepien, to step in.
Mr. Clark and Mr. Stepien, two former White House officials who now run the nuts and bolts of the president’s re-election bid, set Dr. Jackson up with an online fund-raising operation and helped him hire a Washington-based fund-raiser, who channeled Dr. Jackson’s Rolodex into donations. In the primary campaign, Dr. Jackson raised just $280,000. Since making the runoff in March against Mr. Winegarner, Dr. Jackson has raised about $788,000 from more than 10,000 donors, according to the campaign.
This is an impressive testament to the power of the Trump team.
While the media is portraying Trump as the underdog against Biden, it is no different than 2016 against Hillary.
Trump has yet to fully unleash the power of his campaign.
And when Trump and Biden go head to head on the debate stage, the entire country will see first-hand the apparent lack of mental acuity on Biden's part.
Ronny Jackson recently made headlines for his comments on wearing a face mask during the pandemic.
While many in the media have criticized him, many supporters say that he is simply protecting our freedom and right to exercise personal responsibility.
Politico has more details on Jackson's mask comments:
Ronny Jackson, a Republican congressional candidate in Texas and the former physician to the president, said Wednesday that Americans should not be required to wear masks to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
“I think that wearing a mask is a personal choice, and I don’t particularly want my government telling me that I have to wear a mask. And so I think that’s a choice that I can make,” Jackson told “Fox & Friends.”
The remarks from Jackson, a retired Navy rear admiral who served as the personal doctor for Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, not only contradict the universal guidance of public health experts, but also undermine Texas Gov. Greg Abbott — who has mandated that most of his state’s residents wear a mask in public.
Amid a resurgence of coronavirus infections across the South and West, the Republican governor imposed a statewide mask order this month, demanding Texans in counties with more than 20 Covid-19 cases cover their faces when social distancing is not possible.
Virtually all federal health officials have also implored Americans to wear masks as the United States reports record numbers of new cases. CDC Director Robert Redfield said Tuesday the country “can bring this epidemic under control” in as few as one to two months “if we can get everybody to wear a mask right now.”
But Jackson argued Wednesday that Americans should “look at your personal circumstances” and “look at your surroundings” to determine whether mask-wearing is “right for you.”
“I’m a firm believer that that’s, at this point, a personal choice,” he said. “And I encourage people, if they want to wear a mask, to wear a mask. But I don’t wear a mask all that often, to be honest with you.”
Masks have become the latest political front-lines.
People have the freedom to exercise personal responsibility for themselves and for others.
Critics, however, worry that over-reaching Democrats want to control every aspect of American life.
While some might view that as a "conspiracy theory," the increasing levels of government control definitely have many people worried.
