Rep. Jen Kiggans (R-VA02) “Bends the Knee” to Donald Trump, “who called fallen American heroes ‘losers’ and ‘suckers'”

"Kiggans continues to cave to Donald Trump as she falls in line with far-right extremists whose sole mission is to undermine our democracy"


UPDATE 3/7 from the DCCC:

Jen Kiggans Betrays Military Service Members, Endorses Donald Trump

Jen Kiggans is proudly owning her MAGA extremism. Kiggans endorsed Donald Trump and his dangerous far-right agenda that will hurt Virginia families and the working class.

Given the fact that 15% of VA-02 constituents are veterans and the district includes a significant active duty constituency, Trump’s disturbing disrespect for veterans, Gold Star families, and the military is damning for Kiggans:

As a reminder, Trump has a disastrous record and remains an active threat to Virginians:

  • Trump famously bragged about his role in stripping away women’s reproductive freedoms and overturning Roe v. Wade, calling it a “miracle.”
  • Trump wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act, jeopardizing access to health care for the nearly 400,000 Virginians currently enrolled in its plans. Repealing the ACA would expose over 1,349,000 Virginians with pre-existing conditions to loss of coverage.
  • Trump presided over the longest government shutdown in U.S. history and has continued to call for more government shutdowns, hurting many Coastal Virginians who rely on a functioning government for their livelihoods.

Kiggan’s endorsement is unsurprising coming from someone with a glaring history of embracing the MAGA crowd. Kiggans has previously called extremists like Marjorie Taylor Greene her “teammates.”

DCCC Spokesperson Lauryn Fanguen:
“It’s no coincidence that Jen Kiggans endorsed Donald Trump given how she has always been in lock-step with Trump and his extreme MAGA agenda. Kiggans consistently sides with the far-right of her party and votes against the best interest of Coastal Virginians. This November, voters will reject the radical MAGA agenda and kick Kiggans out of office.”

See below for a press release by House Majority PAC on the utterly disgraceful, but totally not surprising, decision by the odious Rep. Jen Kiggans (R-VA02) to endorse Donald Trump for president. The fact is, there are many reasons to defeat Kiggans  this November, but endorsing Trump – a criminal who is trying to destroy our democracy – should be sufficient reason in and of itself. Also, as Justin Chermol – who does communications for the DCCC and House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries – “Jen Kiggans endorses ex-president who called fallen American heroes ‘losers’ and ‘suckers‘.” That’s beyond appalling.

Jen Kiggans Bends the Knee To Donald Trump

Washington D.C. – It’s no surprise that vulnerable Republican Jen Kiggans is showing her true colors and endorsing Donald Trump.

In her endorsement post, Kiggans called on Republicans to “unify” under Donald Trump and that they were on the same “team.”

This comes after she praised right-wing conspiracy theorist and Trump loyalist Marjorie Taylor Greene, describing her as “so kind,” proclaiming that they “want the same things,” and calling her a “teammate.”

“Jen Kiggans continues to cave to Donald Trump as she falls in line with far-right extremists whose sole mission is to undermine our democracy,” HMP Press Secretary Alisha Heng said. “Kiggans abandoned Virginians immediately after she was elected, and in return they will kick her out of office in November.”
