GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has secured his first two endorsement from members of Congress following his big win in Nevada’s caucuses.
Reps. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) and Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) on Wednesday both endorsed Trump, who increasingly looks like he will be the party’s presidential nominee this November.
Trump has struggled to win support from office holders, who have been reluctant to embrace the man who has shaken up the GOP presidential race like no one before him.
Not a single member of Congress had endorsed Trump before his win in Nevada, and this week has seen a flurry of endorsements for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who has yet to beat Trump anywhere.
Collins complimented Trump’s policies on national security and trade in announcing his endorsement.
