PALMDALE – President Donald Trump Monday night tweeted his endorsement of Mike Garcia, the Republican candidate in the special election to fill the congressional seat formerly held by Katie Hill, praising him for being “Strong on Crime, the Border, and Second Amendment.”
Trump tweeted that Garcia “will be a tremendous fighter for the U.S. and the State of California.”
“An Annapolis graduate, he served our Country as a highly decorated Navy Fighter Pilot and will be a great Congressman (#CA25),” Trump tweeted. “Loves our Military, and Vets…”
Trump also tweeted, “Turn your Ballots in now and track them, watching for dishonesty. Report to Law Enforcement.”
Trump also tweeted a link to a website where donations to Garcia’s campaign can be made.
Christy Smith, the Democratic candidate in the race, sent a series of tweets less than an hour after Trump’s tweets in support of Garcia, seeking campaign contributions and sharing a video of comments by Trump from early in the coronavirus outbreak and of Garcia praising him.
The Smith campaign also issued a news release touting her endorsements from various unions.
Sen. Kamala Harris, D-California, also tweeted in support of Smith, and sought to raise funds on her behalf.
Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order March 20 requiring all voters in the 25th Congressional District to receive a vote-by-mail ballot for the May 12 special election in an effort to protect public health and safety during the coronavirus outbreak.
Smith finished first in the March 3 primary with 36.1% of the vote while Garcia was second with 25.4%.
The 25th Congressional District includes the portions of the Antelope Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, the northern San Fernando Valley, and eastern Ventura County.

Faux Patriotism and so-called real Americans like Trumpist and Ron, that consistently prove they no nothing about the Constitution.
“No nothing”. That shows what you KNOW, you semi-literate, obtuse troglodyte.
Now every time you hide behind this and several other fake names and handles, it makes it soooo obvious that you don’t have the guts, credibility or honor to debate me under your usual handle. Go ahead, hide, you little wimpy snowflake.
But we KNOW who you really are, don’t we?
Look around you Ron, Dennis and Trumpist#1.
Are we winning yet?
Is this how America looks when it’s made great again?
The rest of the world has to ignore Trump and do what works re: this pandemic.
Your votes for Trump in November won’t count in the Electoral College when Biden wins California.
So, there’s that.
Anyway, you 3, drink Clorox and go out and mingle with other Trumpers.
We don’t drink Clorox. It”s Koolaid.
At this time, any vote for a Republican candidate (with very few exceptions) is a vote against the Constitution as they have made clear their intents to destroy the United States of America – Trump is merely their clown for the masses to pay attention to while they act behind the scenes.
Trump’s endorsement of Garcia makes clear that, if allowed to gain office, Garcia will violate his oath to the Constitution and assist in the Republican destruction of this country. The bots and self-blinded sycophants just refuse to see this basic reality… along with many other aspects of reality.
Republicans have become traitors.
Your statement demonstrates your irrational and envious hate of all things Republican/Trump and your willingness to destroy the country if necessary to regain power.
Do you work for Global Times? Or CNN (same thing)?
Trump ran a “hate” campaign from birtherism on to “Lock her up.” to the present day hatred of science and those in the government who tell the truth about it.
So, once again,you have no creds here or anywhere I suppose.
You can call people irrational but that’s just you projecting ,a right wing feature not a flaw.
What’s so is the oppostie of what you said.
Your last comment clearly exemplifies the rapid decay of your mental acuity and rational thinking processes.
Now your demented like No-go Joe Biden. You can be his VP. You used to be an evil genius. Now your just evil like Pelosi. Nah, you’re still sharp. Just crazy.
“de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum.”
Nec curant quid facere aut cogitare universum
Typical dumb liberals, you elect liberal politicians, then complain about the way things are, and then elect more dumb liberals and expect things to change. If you want things to change, quit voting for liberals, dummies.
What are you talking about, duh? And, duh is right.
We’ve had a Republican representing this district for decades and only last time and now this time we will have a Democrat.
But, your imagination ran wild. We are criticizing the Trump mess you helped get us into.
Good. Trump endorsing candidates hasn’t always guaranteed a win.
It’s likely that a disaster-(not) waiting-to-happen called Trump will help sink Garcia.
And, that would be great. Why do we need a mindless, thoughtless, sheep-like GOP rep in Congress? Trump can kiss his own behind. California already has Devin Nunes and Kevin McCarthy to counter-balance the smart Democrats from California.
Anyway, in a Speaker Pelosi controlled House of Representatives, Garcia would be a useless capon like Knight was.
And just like that Christy Smith won my vote.
Mike Garcia is the logical candidate to vote for. We do not need another liberal representing the 25th. The last one was a disaster.
No more Do Nothing DEMOCRATS. All they do is bash Trump and make our cities look like 3rd world countries.
And smoke bongs while having threesomes!!! Hey, that sounds pretty good to me, lol. How do I get elected to Congress?
But Democrats will ruin our country with their radical policies if they keep the House.
