Ron Estes on Principles & Values
Trump tweeted about the race, urging voters to get out and support Estes over his Democratic challenger. And Estes had another influential GOP name stumping for him--Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who won the state in the 2016 Republican primaries. Trump, as well as Vice President Mike Pence recorded a robocall endorsing the candidate for the seat, and House Speaker Paul Ryan sent out a fundraising plea.
The district is solidly Republican--Trump won the district in the general election by 27 points [while Estes won by only 7 points]. Meanwhile, the Democratic Campaign Committee did not spent money to help Thompson at all--and the Kansas State Democratic Party rejected his requests for funding mailers.
