The former president and once again candidate, Donald Trump, continues to insert himself into Mississippi’s upcoming congressional elections.

After endorsing incumbent Sen. Roger Wicker on Thursday, Trump turned around over the weekend and endorsed Rep. Mike Ezell. Ezell, who is seeking a second term representing District 4, was backed by the 45th president during his first campaign in 2022.

“Congressman Mike Ezell is doing a fantastic job representing Mississippi’s 4th Congressional District! A former Sheriff of Jackson County, Mike has worked hard to Stop Crime, Uphold the Rule of Law, and Protect the Great People of Mississippi,” Trump wrote in a Truth Social post on Saturday.

“In Congress, he is fighting to Secure the Border, Cut Taxes, Strengthen our Military, Grow the Economy, Support our Vets, and Defend our under siege Second Amendment. An Original Member of my Mississippi Leadership Team, Congressman Mike Ezell has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

Out of Mississippi’s four House members up for reelection, Ezell has the busiest primary field with two Republican challengers – Carl Boyanton and Michael McGill. Ezell was one of the oldest newcomers of the most recent congressional class at age 63 but has done what he can to tackle the learning curve. The former Jackson County sheriff serves on both the House Committee on Homeland Security and the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.

Primary elections in Mississippi are set for Tuesday, March 12. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
