While Ted Cruz is still trying to figure out why it is that all of his congressional colleagues hate him, and Rubio is busy schmoozing establishment money, Donald Trump is winning primaries and caucuses, and after winning Nevada has also picked up the first two of his congressional endorsements.
The endorsements are by Representatives Chris Collins, R-N.Y., and Duncan Hunter, R-C.A.
"Donald Trump has clearly demonstrated that he has both the guts and the fortitude to return our nation's jobs stolen by China, take on our enemies like [the Islamic State], Iran, North Korea and Russia, and most importantly, re-establish the opportunity for our children and grandchildren to attain the American Dream," Collins told the Buffalo News. "That is why I am proud to endorse him as the next president of the United States."
Hunter told Politico he too would back Trump. "We don't need a policy wonk as president. We need a leader as president," he said.
