District 13, Texas

About

Ronny Jackson is running for election to the U.S. House to represent Texas' 13th Congressional District. He declared candidacy in December 2019 for the Republican primary on March 3, 2020.

 

Jackson is a retired U.S. Navy rear admiral who served as the White House physician to the president. On March 28, 2018, President Donald Trump announced his intent to nominate Jackson to serve as his Secretary of Veterans Affairs. He was formally nominated to the position on April 16, 2018. On April 26, 2018, Jackson withdrew his nomination amid unverified accusations of misconduct. Jackson said that the allegations were false. In a statement, he said, "While I will forever be grateful for the trust and confidence President Trump has placed in me by giving me this opportunity, I am regretfully withdrawing my nomination to be Secretary for the Department of Veterans Affairs. The allegations against me are completely false and fabricated. If they had any merit, I would not have been selected, promoted and entrusted to serve in such a sensitive and important role as physician to three presidents over the past 12 years. Unfortunately, because of how Washington works, these false allegations have become a distraction for this president and the important issue we must be addressing — how we give the best care to our nation’s heroes."

 

This is his first race for elective office.
