While dealing with foreign policy flaps involving Syria, Russia and North Korea, President Trump is also keeping his eye on a special congressional election in Kansas.
Republican candidate Ron Estes faces a tougher-than-expected race against Democrat James Thompson in the special election to replace Mike Pompeo, who left Congress to become Trump’s CIA director.
“Ron Estes is running TODAY for Congress in the Great State of Kansas,” Trump tweeted Tuesday. “A wonderful guy, I need his help on Healthcare & Tax Cuts (Reform).”
Though Trump won the Kansas congressional district easily in last year’s presidential election, his struggles in the early part of his term have fueled Democratic hopes in the special election.
Trump and Vice President Pence have also recorded robo-calls for Estes.
In his call, Trump said: “On Tuesday, Republican Ron Estes needs your vote and needs it badly. Ron is a conservative leader who’s going to work with me to make America great again.”
