  • “Duty. Honor. Country. These three words guided me in battle, and they’ll be my north star in Congress.”
  • “To secure America’s future, we need a new generation of leadership in Congress. With an unwavering belief in American exceptionalism, I know we can secure our way of life. Cutting taxes and growing our economy, securing the border and strengthening our military. When America stands together, we can do anything.”
  • “Changing Washington won’t be easy, but graduating from West Point and serving in the United States Army, being deployed to combat zones, and flying Apache helicopters over Iraq has prepared me for tough fights and big challenges.  I truly believe nothing is more worth fighting for than our great country and our way of life in the Houston area.”


  • “Wesley Hunt will be a great Congressman for Texas’ new 38th Congressional District! A West Point graduate, who bravely flew Apache helicopters in combat, Wesley served our nation with honor.  In Congress, he will strongly fight for Border Security, to Protect Life, Election Integrity, Defend the Second Amendment, and Support our Military, Vets, and Law Enforcement. Wesley is an America First patriot, and he has my Complete and Total Endorsement!” – Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States
  • “I am proud to endorse Wesley Hunt for Texas’ new Congressional district.  Wesley is a strong conservative leader, devoted family man, West Point graduate and combat veteran.  As a former Apache helicopter pilot who completed 55 combat missions in Iraq, Wesley has proven that he is just the type of battle-hardened leader and patriot we need in the halls of Congress.  In order to stop Biden and Pelosi’s out-of-control tax and spending spree, secure our border and pull our economy back from the brink, we need fighters in Congress like Wesley.  I look forward to supporting Wesley Hunt and working with him as a member of Congress” – Kevin McCarthy, US Representative for CA-23
  • “I am excited to endorse Wesley Hunt for Congress in Texas’ 38th Congressional district. As an Army combat veteran, husband, and father of two daughters, Wesley will be unapologetic about combating the radical left to preserve the American liberties granted to us in our Constitution.  Texas’ 38th Congressional district desperately needs a fighter who will work to secure our elections, keep Critical Race Theory out of our schools, protect our southern border, and stand up to Biden and the Democrats’ failed radical economic policies that have caused so much harm to our country. I am confident that the voters of TX-38 will agree with me and elect Wesley Hunt to Congress” – Elise Stefanik, US Representative for NY-21
