ATLANTA, Ga. – Leading conservative, previous Trump-appointed NASA administrator, and former Oklahoma Congressman Jim Bridenstine has endorsed Gov. Ron DeSantis to be the next President of the United States. The announcement follows the endorsement of 20 Oklahoma state legislators backing Gov. Ron DeSantis’ bid for the White House.
“Governor DeSantis and I were classmates in Congress, original members of the Freedom Caucus, and we have worked together on many legislative issues over the years,” said the former Congressman and former NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. “Governor DeSantis is highly intellectual, always willing to listen, and relentless in fighting for what’s right. He has always been strong on defense and a great advocate for America’s space program. He will make a great Commander in Chief.”
Bridenstine was appointed to serve as the 13th administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) by President Trump in 2018 and represented Oklahoma’s first congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2013 – 2018, where he served as a leading conservative voice in the U.S. House and was an original member of the Freedom Caucus.
