Updated at 4 p.m. with Trump reiterating his endorsement of Susan Wright.
Former Texas Governor Rick Perry said on Wednesday that former President Donald Trump received misleading information, prompting him to support Republican activist Susan Wright for Congress.
Perry, who served as Secretary of the Department of Energy under Trump, is backing Wright’s rival state representative Jake Ellzey for the District 6 seat once held by Ron Wright, Susan Wright’s late husband. Perry claims Trump received false information from the leader of the conservative group called Club for Growth.
I explained to the president where he received an invoice for goods, Perry told the Dallas Morning News. I think he recognizes it to some extent.
Perry then landed on the Club for Growth, calling them a corrupt organization that twists the facts in order to promote their choices in elections.
This is the same Club for Growth that spent millions of dollars against Donald Trump, Perry said.

Trump reaffirmed his approval of Wright via email on Wednesday.
Big election coming Tuesday July 27 in Texas, he wrote. Get out there and vote for Susan Wright! Susan is exceptional and her late husband, Congressman Ron Wright, looks down and is very proud of her. She will serve the people of the Great State of Texas in the 6th Congressional District very well.
He went on to praise Wright’s conservative credentials.
Susan is for Strong Borders, Pro-Life, Pro-Second Amendment, Great Education, and will fight to bring back free and fair elections. Susan has my complete and utter approval, he wrote. It will be the pride of our country. Vote Tuesday!
In response to Perry, Joe Kildea, vice president of the Club for Growth, asked The News to share Trump’s comments on his support for Wright during a teleconference in May.
It’s just an honor for me to get involved and to be involved in this race, Trump said while welcoming his partnership with the Club for Growth. We worked together. We have never had a defeat together. Every time we’ve chased someone and, you know, supported and worked for someone, we’ve won. So I hope everyone can come out on Saturday May 1 and vote for Susan Wright.
Wright’s general consultant, Matthew Langston, hit back at Perry. He alluded to a 2012 presidential debate, when Perry forgot which federal agencies he would be cutting.
Oops! Looks like Rick Perry has no idea what he’s talking about again, Langston said. President Trump knows Susan and Ron very well, and he also knows that Jake Ellzey is a weak RINO who takes money from Never-Trumpers like Bill Kristol. Susan is clearly the conservative choice to advance President Trumps America First’s agenda in Congress.
Trump, who remains the most formidable figure in the Republican Party, has already played a key role in the District 6 special election to replace Ron Wright. In the May primary that brought together 23 candidates, Wright’s endorsement at Trump’s 11th hour is credited with his first place. She beat Ellzey by 4,200 votes.
With Trump’s backing, Wright is considered the favorite in Tuesday’s second round. But Ellzey, who represents a Statehouse district within the Congressional District, enjoys significant support.
Perry said he told Trump that the Club for Growth unfairly slanders Ellzey with its ads, including at least nine campaign direct mail that showcased the Waxahachie Republican as a tool for Democrats who are lenient with border security and against Trump. Ellzey and his supporters say none of this is true.

And the shippers are the reason the man who held the seat for 34 years, Joe Barton, backed Ellzey over Wright, an Arlington Republican.
The president fell for the lie, Perry said, adding that Club for Growth president David McIntosh was instrumental in gaining support from former presidents for Wright. I’m sure he turned to one of his relatives and told him to approve of this lady that McIntosh is for.
Perry pointed to a recent Club for Growth direct mail as evidence that they are twisting Ellzeys’ record.
Highlighting that last post I saw, dark and menacing-looking Jake Ellzey with Nancy Pelosi looking over his shoulder, it’s about as obnoxious as it gets in my opinion, Perry said.
The former Texas governor then slammed Wright, saying she should tell Club for Growth officials to stop their senders.
If Susan Wright doesn’t, I think Shell gets beaten, and she should be beaten, Perry said.
