(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Former President Donald Trump officially endorsed Max Miller to run for Congress to represent Ohio’s 16th district. He will go head-to-head in a primary race against incumbent Rep. Anthony Gonzalez who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump in January.
The former president announced his endorsement for Miller on Friday, describing him as a “wonderful person who did a great job at the White House.”
“He is a Marine Veteran, a son of Ohio, and a true PATRIOT,” Trump said. “Current Rep. Anthony Gonzalez should not be representing the people of the 16th district because he does not represent their interest or their heart. Max Miller has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

Gonzalez, who is currently serving his second term as a Republican congressman, is a former football player. He voted to impeach the president in January and claimed that he didn’t do enough to stop the violence.
He is one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach the former president, and one of the first in a long list of targets for MAGA primary challenges before the 2022 midterms.
Miller is a 32-year-old former Trump campaign worker who also served in the White House during the Trump administration.
The news follows reports from sources close to the former president that he is planning on unseating all Republicans who either voted for his impeachment or who were disloyal to the Make America Great Again agenda during his four years in the White House.
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp is thought to be another target for the former president, following his refusal to comply with demands for a signature verification recount after the 2020 presidential election.
Former President Trump not only has the support of a majority of Republican voters, but his Save America PAC has tens of millions of dollars left over from his 2020 presidential campaign that he is expected to use on ads and campaigns against anti-Trump Republican candidates.
Ohio Rep. Gonzalez, who was first elected in 2018, was also censured by local GOP organizations after he accused the former president of abandoning his post during the Capitol Hill riot.
“During the attack itself, the president abandoned his post while many members asked for help, thus further endangering all present,” he said in January.
