(Washington, D.C.) – Louisiana Congressman and Republican Whip Steve Scalise endorsed Chris Jacobs today to be the next member of Congress from New York’s 27th District. Scalise is the House Republican Whip and one of President Trump’s strongest allies on Capitol Hill. 

“Chris Jacobs is the conservative fighter Western New York needs in Congress to help President Trump keep our economy roaring, finish the wall and make sure our military continues to be the strongest and best trained fighting force in the world,” Scalise said.

“I’m honored to have the support of a great conservative leader like Steve Scalise,” Jacobs said. “As I told Whip Scalise this morning, I can’t wait to join him in the fight in Congress against the socialist policies the radical left is trying to force on the American people,” Jacobs said.

Jacobs was nominated Saturday by Republican leaders as their nominee for the 27th district special election.
