GLOBE EXCLUSIVE: Kevin Kiley Garners Former Pres. Donald Trump Endorsement for Congressional Race

Trump-endorsed candidates have all won or moved into runoffs

UPDATED 5/14/2022: The California Globe has learned that California Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R-Rocklin), who is running for Congress in Congressional District 3, has garnered the golden endorsement of former President Donald Trump – 58 out of 59 of his endorsed candidates have all won or moved into runoffs.

Kiley was elected to the California State Assembly in 2016 and has twice been reelected. In the 2020 election, he received more votes than any Republican in California history.

Kiley also has been a vociferous opponent of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s “one man rule.” Since March 2020, Gov. Newsom ran roughshod over the people and businesses in this state issuing 58 executive orders, and many of them legally dubious if not outright unconstitutional, all under the guise of “public health.”

Assemblymen James Gallagher and Kevin Kiley sued to stop Newsom’s the Globe reported.  “A California Governor is constitutionally forbidden from doing the very thing Gov. Newsom has done here: exercise legislative powers,” they said.

Kiley ran in the gubernatorial recall election last year, and has twice been reelected to the Assembly by substantial margins. Many of his followers and faithful are also “America First” Trump supporters.

“Just yesterday, Secrets reported a Rasmussen Reports survey that suggested an endorsement from Trump is not just valuable, but much more than one from unpopular President Joe Biden,”  Paul Bedard, Washington Secrets Columnist wrote at the Washington Examiner.

The Globe will follow up when Kiley officially makes his announcement.

UPDATE: Director of Communications for Save America and President Donald J. Trump, Taylor Budowich, issued this announcement Saturday morning about Kiley’s endorsement:

“45: @KevinKileyCA, who is running for Congress in California’s 3rd Congressional District, has been a conservative champion in the California State Capitol—no one has fought Gavin Newsom harder than Kevin.”

  1. Go go go Kevin Kiley! Wish you were running in my district….I have Anna Achoooooooo!!!, I mean Eschoo as my House Rep. Anyway a good endorsement by the REAL PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!

  2. SFGate and LA Times editorial staff are being called together. Here are the kinds of headlines we need ASAP!
    “Kevin Kiley….Another White Supremacist?”
    “Kevin Kiley and His History of Hatred Towards Women”
    “Kevin Kiley and His Lack of Empathy Towards the Homeless”
    “Kevin Kiley and His Problematic History of Islamophobia”
    “Kevin Kiley and His Anti-semetism”

  3. I was puzzled as to why the Kiley campaign had not sought out the Trump endorsement earlier; since it surely would be provided (if requested) given Kevin’s record on the issues. In addition, several prominent Trump supporters like Jenna Ellis had backed Kiley’s campaign during the Newsom recall vote. Perhaps some in Kevin’s current circle were leery of a Trump endorsement and the type of headlines that No Newsom lists above? However, those ad hominem attacks are sure to come ANYWAY during the general election regardless of any endorsements. That’s when Kevin’s opponent will be Newsom’s designated Democrat. But Kiley needs to make it as SURE as possible that he wins the primary FIRST. Imo, the Trump endorsement virtually guarantees it – Trump’s numbers don’t lie like the Democrats do.

  4. Count me in as an honorary resident who supports you! I’m in a district who’s got her position handed down by her late husband. “I’ll never forget what’s her name”
