October 3, 2018

Donald Trump Jr. will be in Texas today to support Sen. Ted Cruz’s re-election bid at two campaign rallies.

Trump Jr. is scheduled to appear in Wichita Falls at 3 p.m. Another rally is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. in Conroe at the Lone Star Convention & Expo Center, 9055 Airport Road. The president’s son is expected to be accompanied by former Fox News Channel personality Kimberly Guilfoyle.

Trump Jr. has also made recent stops in Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Dakota and Montana, warning Republicans that his father’s agenda will be in danger if Republicans lose big during the November elections.

THE BIG PICTURE: Ted Cruz as peacemaker? Senator walks a fine line in embracing Trump

At a rally last week in Montana, Trump Jr. praised his father’s presidency, highlighting economic growth and other steps the Trump administration has taken abroad, such as withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, the Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported.

President Donald Trump announced in a tweet in August that he planned to campaign for Cruz in October, but no event has been announced yet.

Cruz is seeking re-election in a tight race against Democrat Beto O’Rourke.
