Former CA Gov Pete Wilson endorses Alex Gray's Senate bid


Oklahoma City, OK (March 29th) – Today, former Trump national security official and U.S. Senate candidate Alex Gray has received the endorsement of Governor Pete Wilson. This marks the eleventh high-profile endorsement since Gray announced his candidacy earlier this month. 

Wilson served the state of California as a United States Senator from 1983 until he was elected the 36th Governor of California in 1991. He has been a national leader in the fight against illegal immigration and to secure our borders for decades. A close friend of President Ronald Reagan, Wilson has been a conservative icon for decades.

“No one understands better than Alex Gray that America's national security urgently depends upon strict control of our borders, and the careful vetting of immigrants to assure enforcement of our immigration laws.  His four years of service to President Trump in the White House included his critically important role as Chief of Staff of the National Security Council.  He knows that anything less than constant rigorous enforcement of our immigration laws threatens a clear and present danger to America’s safety.

In the Senate, Alex Gray will champion the rule of law to uphold America's sovereignty and demand the safety of our citizens.” said Governor Wilson in a statement endorsing Alex Gray.

“Governor Wilson has been on the frontlines of the battle to control our border and enforce our immigration laws for decades. He was a fighter for conservative values in the Senate and as Governor, with many of his policies anticipating the America First movement of President Trump. I could not be more proud to have his support in my own bid for the U.S. Senate,” Gray said in response to the endorsement. 

Governor Wilson joins Senator Mike Lee of Utah, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, former National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien, former Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell, former Chief of Staff to the Secretary of Defense Kash Patel, Lt. Gen. (Ret) Keith Kellogg, former Acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller, Congressman Paul Gosar, former Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, former Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, and the first CEO of the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation Adam Boehler in endorsing Gray’s candidacy.
