Rep. Will Hurd said he still hasn’t decided whether or not to support President Donald Trump’s reelection.

The GOP lawmaker from Texas told FiveThirtyEight Politics Podcast that he isn’t happy with either candidate on the ballot and that he is “hesitant” to back Trump. 

Hurd, who is leaving office after the General Election, said he will “evaluate” his decision over the next few months, adding he “always” keeps an open mind about elections. 

"Like a lot of Americans, I wish I had different options on the ballot. And my plan is always to support a Republican and we're going to be making those decisions over the next 98 days,” he said on the podcast.

Podcast host Galen Druke pointed out that Hurd previously said he was going to vote for Trump. He asked if he was hesitant to now.

"I think that's accurate," Hurd replied. "Y'all's polling are showing that. I'm like everybody else . . . I don't want to vote for a Joe Biden because in the end, some of the policies of a unified Democratic party is going to pass in a unified government would be tough for the country and the things that I don't support and haven't supported during my times in Congress.”
