Mary Miller thanks Trump in Illinois for ‘victory for white life,’ reportedly botched remark
U.S. Representative Mary Miller attends a rally of former President Donald Trump in west-central Illinois.
She faced backlash after a comment at the rally when he credited the Supreme Court for overturning Rowe v. Wade, calling it a “victory for white life.”
President-elect Donald Trump backed Miller when he began his campaign on New Year’s Day.
State Sen. Darren Bailey, for governor, also supported R-Zenia, calling both of them “warriors.”
Miller’s rival in the 15th Congressional District Republican primary, U.S. Republican Rodney Davis, R-Taylorville, seized it, noting Miller’s remarks as “another part of a disturbing pattern of behavior he has displayed since coming to Congress.”
Miller’s spokeswoman Isaiah Wartman told NBC News that Miller “meant the ‘right to life.’ Miller Mendon was seen reading from comments prepared at the rally at Adams County Fairgrounds.
Wartman did not immediately respond to a text message seeking clarification from the State Journal-Register.
In a subsequent tweet, Miller said he would “always defend the right to life!”
