Gohmert’s Statement on the 2016 Presidential ElectionPosted on November 9, 2016 in Press Releases
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement regarding the results of the historic 2016 Presidential Election last night:
“The Election Results in Congressional District 1 are in, and I am so exceedingly humbled to get to serve the greatest people in any Congressional district in the country.”
“At the same time, we now know that Donald Trump will be President and the Republicans will still have a majority in the House and the Senate. That means the Republican leadership’s ideas about legislation in the upcoming lame duck session needs to be scaled back to bare minimums until our new President and the newly elected Congress members get sworn in.”
“It also means that we can finally have proper investigations into the governmental fiascos that have gotten people killed. If we had taken control of our border sooner and kept criminals out, at least one Smith County ten year old would still be alive today.”
“As I have said before, Donald Trump is not our salvation, but his election means we have one more chance to get our country back on track before it is too late for the upcoming generation.”

Gohmert's Statement on Republican Presidential Nominee Donald TrumpPosted on October 14, 2016 in Press Releases
"In his days as a Democrat funder and his friendship with Bill Clinton, Donald Trump’s language was extremely inappropriate, even though Barrack Obama can be seen on video using the same exact language. I knew Donald Trump had such a background, and anticipate there are more atrocious comments in his storied background to be revealed which the mainstream media has been waiting to publicize til October. That’s a reason I didn’t support him in the primary.
Trump did not sell his country to our enemies, unlike Hillary who has become enriched by, among other things, accommodating the sale of U.S. uranium to Russia. Russia is increasing their nuclear arsenal while ours is deteriorating, but got millions rather than the standard 30 pieces of silver.
Dr. James Dobson tells me Trump truly has become a Christian, though obviously with a lot to learn. It was a huge step for him to accept my request that he sit down with my friend, Ted Cruz, and work things out. He did and is making real progress.
I also know that people have 4 choices: (1) vote for Hillary; (2) vote for Trump; (3) vote for a someone besides these two; or (4) don’t vote. Three of those four choices elect Hillary who supports our killing of 1.2 million more babies a year. Previously I would say “unborn babies” but in a recent hearing, we found no Democrats to support a bill that made it illegal to kill a child born alive after an attempted abortion.
Hillary staunchly condemns those who follow Moses’ and Jesus’ teaching on marriage and will push even further than the Supreme Court already has until marriage becomes what it was “in the days of Noah” before the flood. That’s rather dangerous.
If Hillary is elected, the Supreme Court decision declaring a Constitutional right for an American to own a gun in a 5 to 4 decision, will go the other way. So will many other cases that protected our religious and speech freedoms. Because of these facts, I do condemn Donald Trump’s past language, but will do everything I can legally and ethically to see he is elected as President instead of Hillary Clinton. If he is not elected, subpoenaing sermon notes as happened in Houston is a drop in the bucket to what is coming."

Springfield, VA. –Re-electing Louie Gohmert to Congress will make Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and the Republican establishment miserable.
That’s why Gun Owners of America is proud to endorse him for Congress in Texas’ First Congressional District.
Now more than ever, your gun rights are in existential danger.
Barack Obama has waged an unprecedented war against the Constitution, issuing a crushing tidal wave of executive actions that seek to repeal the Second Amendment, bit by bit.
It’s a never-before-seen abuse of executive power.
And Hillary Clinton vows to take it even further.
Her goal is to end private gun ownership in the United States.
And she is willing do it.
But Congressman Gohmert has been there to fight back, every step of the way.
No elected official works harder to protect your gun rights than Rep. Gohmert. And I’m not talking about words alone.
Rep. Gohmert has a perfect, 100% pro-gun voting record.
And he is also not afraid to take on leaders of his own party who are willing to cut deals that compromise your gun rights.
No matter what the media, congressional leaders or the president say, Louie Gohmert stands behind his oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Ted Cruz released the following statement regarding his support and endorsement of Rep. Louie Gohmert’s reelection bid in Texas’ First Congressional District:
“Please join me in supporting my friend, Louie Gohmert. With so much at stake, now is not the time to send an unproven representative to Congress. Louie is a committed conservative who has stood up to the liberal Democrats in Washington and delivered conservative results for East Texas. We need Louie fighting for us in Congress, and I am proud to endorse him for re-election.”
