Teddy Daniels, a wounded Army combat veteran who finished 2nd in the crowded GOP primary for the 8th District in 2020, sent out a tweet and fundraising email announcing that he met with Trump earlier that afternoon at Trump National Golf Course. 

“Great afternoon with President Trump and Congressman Jody Hice, Chair of the House Freedom Caucus at Trump National Golf Course. Had a great talk with President Trump. Was nice meeting Ivanka Trump, too.” Daniels wrote in a tweet on Tuesday evening.
