Dr. Ronny Jackson, President Donald Trump’s former White House doctor, filed to run for Congress on Monday.
Jackson is running in Texas’ ruby-red 13th District, which is currently represented by outgoing Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-TX).
Trump tapped Jackson to head the Veteran Affairs Department in April 2018, but his nomination was torpedoed after allegations of Jackson fostering an abusive work environment and drinking on the job arose.
After Jackson withdrew his nomination, he chose not to return as Trump’s personal doctor. He remained in the White House medical unit.
