GOP Congressman Bradley Byrne has a message for Republicans: It’s time to unite behind Donald Trump.

In a statement Wednesday, Byrne urged Republicans to unite behind the presumptive Republican nominee in order to defeat the likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

“The primary process has been long and challenging, but the American people have spoken loud and clear,” said Byrne. “The time has come for the Republican Party to unite to defeat Hillary Clinton, and I will be voting for Donald Trump in November. With everything going on in the world today, these times require a strong leader who understands the need for a powerful military and who will stand up for our veterans. We cannot tolerate four more years of bloated, expensive, liberal policies that make life harder for American families.”

Trump all but clinched the Republican presidential nomination Tuesday with a victory in Indiana that knocked his opponents Ted Cruz and John Kasich out of the race. Trump still needs more than 200 delegates to formally secure the nomination, but his rival’s decisions to end their campaigns removed his last major obstacle.
Trump said he spoke with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus Tuesday night. Priebus, who has had a contentious relationship thus far in the process with Trump, made clear the reality TV star and businessman would be at the top of the ticket in November.

Trump is expected to secure the Party’s formal nomination at the Republican National Convention, set to take place July 18-21 2016 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.
