On Friday, former New Mexico Rep. Yvette Herrell’s campaign released a new television advertisement featuring pro-Trump Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), in which he called New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District voters to send Herrell to Washington, D.C. to join him.
“I’m fighting for our country, and our President, every day. And I’m asking you to send Yvette Herrell to join us in that fight. I’ve known Yvette for years — she’s rock solid. Yvette will take on the Washington swamp, she’ll boldly stand with President Trump to secure our border, hold China accountable, help restart our great economy. Don’t believe the special interest lies you’re hearing. Vote Yvette Herrell for Congress,” Jordan said in the ad.
In 2018, Jordan was an early endorsement of Herrell’s congressional campaign, writing, “Yvette is a proven conservative who is not afraid to fight for the principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility originally envisioned by our Founding Fathers. I look forward to having an ally like Yvette Herrell in the House of Representatives.”
The new uplifting ad from one of Congress’ staunchest defenders of President Donald Trump comes in the wake of a firestorm of lie-filled ads from out-of-state PACs and Herrell’s opposition in the race, apparently seeing her campaign as a threat.
