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.”
