President Donald Trump is endorsing three GOP candidates in competitive races in Texas. On Wednesday, Trump tweeted his endorsement of Wesley Hunt, an Army vet who is one of six Republicans challenging Democratic Representative Lizzie Fletcher of Houston. The president also endorsed Beth Van Duyne, the former mayor of Irving, and August Pfluger, an Air Force vet, who are both in crowded fields seeking to replace a pair of retiring congressmen. In each race, Trump is backing the top fundraiser who has the best-known endorsements.
