President Trump’s endorsement of Hung Cao over the weekend in Virginia’s United States Senate race should be no surprise. Loomer Unleashed has covered in depth Cao’s primary GOP opponent, Scott Parkinson’s anti-Trump ties. Parkinson’s campaign is a client of Axiom, a firm Never Trumper Jeff Roe owns. Parkinson’s previous job was as Vice President of Government Affairs for Club for Growth, an organization that spent millions against Trump during the Iowa Caucus. Worse, Parkinson even indicated that Trump’s indictments brought by Alvin Bragg were a distraction. Trump’s endorsement of Cao shows loyalty and firm MAGA policy are critical attributes that Republican candidates for office must possess.

President Trump wrote on TruthSocial over the weekend, “Hung Cao is a highly respected retired Navy Captain running to represent the Great People of Virginia in the United States Senate. A Combat Veteran and Highly Decorated Special Operations Officer, Hung Cao will be a tireless fighter to stop Inflation, grow our Economy, secure our Border, strongly support our Incredible Military/Vets, and defend our always under siege Second Amendment. Hung Cao has my Complete and Total Endorsement – HE WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN, AND WE WILL, AT THE SAME TIME, GET RID OF THE WORST PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY, CROOKED JOE BIDEN!”


After receiving Trump’s endorsement, Cao posted, “I’m honored to receive an endorsement from the 45th and 47th President of the United States Donald Trump!”

Trump’s endorsement of Cao over Parkinson should be no surprise. On March 30th, 2023, following the announcement that Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg would be indicting President Trump, making Trump the first United States President in history to face criminal charges, Parkinson referred to the event as a distraction and called on GOP presidential candidates to focus on other issues, “Instead, candidates must refocus on the real kitchen table conversations happening across America & present the American People with a plan to rescue the Middle Class from Bidenflation, increase public safety in our communities, & restore parents’ rights in the classroom.”

Parkinson was also the Vice President of Government Affairs for Club for Growth, an organization that spent millions against Trump during the Iowa Caucus.

During Trump’s first term, Parkinson and the Club for Growth worked with Never Trump U.S. Senators Pat Toomey, Ben Sasse, and Democrat United States Senators Mark Warner and Maggie Hassan to limit President Trump’s trade authority. Parkinson wrote, “We applaud Senators Toomey (R-PA), Warner (D-VA), Sasse (R-NE), and Hassan (D-NH) along with Representatives Gallagher (R-WI), Kind (D-WI), LaHood (R-IL), and Panetta (D-CA) for their bipartisan leadership on this important issue. We strongly urge all Members of Congress to cosponsor the “Congressional Trade Authority Act” and work toward its swift enactment.”

Worse, Parkinson’s campaign is a client of Axiom Strategies, a firm that Never Trumper Jeff Roe owns.

Virginia voters must have President Trump’s back in the upcoming Virginia Senate GOP Primary by delivering a sound victory for Hung Cao and a massive defeat for Scott Parkinson.
