Donald Trump Jr. endorsed Maryland GOP House nominee Matthew Foldi on Tuesday, a week before the state’s primary election.

Trump Jr.’s endorsement in the swing race comes as Republicans battle for majority control of Congress in what could be a “red wave” midterm election cycle. Foldi, an investigative journalist turned Republican candidate, is running to unseat incumbent Rep. David Trone, D-Md., who has represented the state’s 6th congressional district since 2018. Cook Political Report calls the race a “Democratic lean “.

“We are living through the most corrupt administration of my life,” Trump Jr. said in a statement first shared with Fox News Digital. “The economy is in shambles. And the media is just carrying water for Joe Biden. We desperately need more conservative fighters in Washington, DC who aren’t afraid to stand up to the radical left. .”

“That’s why I’m proud to support Matthew Foldi for Congress and encourage all Republicans to unite behind him,” he continued. “His background as an investigative journalist is crucial in exposing the corruption of Joe Biden and his radical left-wing cronies. I know he will hold accounts and fight for American values ​​in Congress.”

Foldi has raised more than $250,000 in total and his supporters have made more than 200,000 campaign calls in the district since June 1, Foldi spokesman Luke Thompson told Fox News Digital.

In addition to Trump Jr., Foldi has received endorsements from an array of high-profile Republicans, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and Gov. Larry Hogan, R-Md. , since announcing his candidacy for Congress in early May.

“I am extremely grateful for Donald Trump Jr.’s support,” Foldi said in a statement. “Few people have done more to grow our party and help elect a new generation of Conservative leaders over the past 6 years than he.”

“Don understands how important it is to expose corruption and fight for policies that put our country first,” he said. “We simply cannot afford two more years of complete Democratic control in Washington, DC. I look forward to working with a unified Republican Party to take back our country.”

Foldi has repeatedly hammered Trone for rarely opening his local district offices and for not being a “full-time congressman.” His campaign even developed the “no show throne” moniker for the Democratic incumbent.

“There are three constants in life: death, taxes and David Trone literally doesn’t work,” Foldi tweeted on July 5.

Cook Political Report called the contest “lean Democratic”. The Maryland primaries, in which Trone and Foldi are seeking their parties’ respective nominations, are scheduled for July 19.

The Trone campaign did not immediately respond to a Fox News Digital request for comment.
