Trump-supporting Arizona congressional candidate suspends campaign after overdosing on heroin

Published

Chris Taylor, a Trump-backing congressional candidate running in Arizona, has suspended his campaign after revealing that he overdosed on heroin.

The Arizona Republic reports that Taylor, a combat veteran who has battled with drug addiction since high school, admitted that he relapsed in his announcement about suspending his campaign.

“Today, I have suspended my campaign for the US House of Representatives and am seeking treatment for substance abuse disorder,” he said. “I will fully cooperate with local authorities on any matters arising from my recent relapse and overdose.”

Taylor was taken to the hospital last week to be treated for an overdose after a family member found him unresponsive in his home.

On his campaign website, Taylor made “supporting President Trump” one of his top priorities, behind only finishing the construction of the wall across the U.S.-Mexico border.

Other priorities listed by Taylor include standard Republican positions on abortion, guns, and taxes.

"For four years now, as both a candidate and president, Donald Trump has repeatedly attacked America’s voting system, falsely claiming voter fraud any time it suited his needs. In a new low, last week he threatened the federal funding of two states over their reasonable moves to facilitate mail-in voting," the newspaper noted in an editorial published online on Memorial Day. "What does it say that the head of the world’s leading democracy is so intent on undermining that democracy?"

On Monday, during his observance of Memorial Day, former Vice President Joe Biden donned a face mask in accordance with CDC guidelines — a contrast with President Donald Trump, who has frequently refused to wear a mask even in some places that require them.

But Fox News senior analyst Brit Hume went out of his way to mock how Biden looked wearing it.
