Former White House Doctor Ronny Jackson Wins Primary Runoff
On Tuesday, former White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson won the House GOP primary runoff for Texas’ 13th Congressional District. The current occupant of the seat, Republican Rep. Mac Thornberry, is retiring after 25 years.
Once President Trump’s nominee to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, Jackson was strongly backed by the President in the race. After the race was called, Jackson took to Twitter to say that he and his wife Jane “just got off the phone with @realDonaldTrump! It’s official! I am honored to be the Republican nominee for #TX13! I promise I will make you proud!”
