Chris Taylor, a Trump-backing congressional candidate running in Arizona, was forced to suspend his campaign after it was revealed that he overdosed on heroin.
According to The Arizona Republic, 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 is also a prominent Trump supporter. In his website, he claims that “supporting President Trump” is one of his top priorities.
