Central NYer Never Trumper Rep John Katko Changes Mind

Four years ago, Republican Congressman John Katko, representing the 24th New York State Congressional District, said he would never vote for Donald Trump for president. Yesterday, he released a statement saying he would support Trump in this year’s election.

According to the statement, Katko said, “As much as I am sometimes frustrated by the President’s approach, I believe our country is in a better place today than it was four years ago. We cannot afford the extreme policies being championed by the left, which would result in higher taxes for every American and a guaranteed debt crisis for our country. Given this choice, I will support President Trump this November.”

He went on to say that his endorsement was not a blanket one, “I will continue, as I always have, to be a vocal check on the President when I disagree with his rhetoric and with policy decisions that are not in the best interest of Central New York.”
