The Texas Republican is scheduled to speak at a private April 27 event in Hobbs on behalf of former Hobbs Mayor Monty Newman.

Newman is seeking the Republican nomination for the state's second district currently held by U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce, who is running for New Mexico governor. The race is one of many expected to draw national attention in the 2018 midterms.

The district is located on the state's U.S.-Mexico border region and has a large number of Hispanic voters.
