Ryan Zinke – Former Navy SEAL and Secretary of the Interior under President Trump – endorsed Tyler Allcorn yesterday to be Colorado’s Congressman from the 8th Congressional District.
“President Trump trusted Tyler Allcorn to destroy ISIS in the Middle East and I trust Tyler will never stop fighting for the people of Colorado’s 8th Congressional District,” Zinke stated in the press release. “Members of the Special Forces like Tyler run towards the fight and we need fighters now more than ever in Congress. Voters in the 8th Congressional District have the opportunity to send in a Green Beret and I urge them to vote for Tyler Allcorn in the June primary and in November against Yadira Caraveo.”
“Secretary Zinke is a battle-tested patriot and I’m honored to earn the support of one of America’s top warriors,” Allcorn stated in the release. “The 8th Congressional District is full of patriots like Former Seal Team Six Leader Ryan Zinke who know we need a fighter in Congress, not more of the same. I was a warrior for the people when I served on the battlefields of the Middle East, and I will be a warrior for the people in Congress.”
Colorado Politics also reported on the endorsement:

Ryan Zinke, a former Montana congressman and head of a political action committee that supports conservative veterans, lauded Allcorn’s military background in a statement obtained by Colorado Politics.
“President Trump trusted Tyler Allcorn to destroy ISIS in the Middle East, and I trust Tyler will never stop fighting for the people of Colorado’s 8th Congressional District,” Zinke said.
