Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, has endorsed the Senate bid of Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga.
Collins is challenging Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga.
The Hill noted that Biggs’ announced support provides Collins with key backing in the intraparty fight.
Collins tweeted Monday: “Our campaign was endorsed by @andybiggs4az, Chairman of the Freedom Caucus today.”
The tweet quoted Biggs: “You know Doug as a longtime representative of Georgia’s 9th Congressional District, and for his fierce defense of President Donald J. Trump. I would be honored if you would join me in supporting Doug Collins for the United States Senate.”
And in another tweet, Collins said he was appreciative for Biggs’ endorsement. He wrote: “@andybiggs4az, Chairman of the Freedom Caucus is one of the true champions in D.C. fighting to cut our national debt, a relentless defender of President Trump, and a friend. I am honored to have his support in this race for the Senate!”
In a Sunday interview on Fox News, Collins said he turned down Trump’s offer to be director of national intelligence in order to stay in the Senate race.
