President tweets support of GOP candidate in SC-5

(WIS) - If you were wondering who President Donald Trump is rooting for in the SC-5 special election on June 20, you won't have to wonder anymore.

President Trump tweeted his support of businessman Ralph Norman, saying in two different tweets that Norman would be "fantastic help to me in cutting taxes, and...getting great border security and healthcare."

Norman is running against Democrat Archie Parnell in a special election to replace former Rep. Mick Mulvaney, who is now a member of the Trump Administration as the Director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Norman thanked the president for his support.

The president also tweeted about another hotly contested seat in the House of Representatives - Georgia's Sixth District, tweeting support for conservative Karen Handel.
