GOP Congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw hasn’t been on the national scene for very long, but if what we’ve seen from him so far is any indication, he’s one of the good guys.
After “Saturday Night Live” star and comedian Pete Davidson posted a disturbing message on his Instagram account, a message interpreted by many to be a suicide note, Crenshaw reached out to the man who’d once mocked him:

After Pete Davidson posted a cry for help on Instagram, @DanCrenshawTX reached out: “What I told him is that everyone has a purpose in this world. God put you here for a reason… Know that you have value & you do more good for ppl than you realize.” Amen.pic.twitter.com/1Ns4e7ZdRf

I disagree with @DanCrenshawTX on many issues, but he always seems like a class act who is willing to meet people in the middle. Politics needs way more of that lately.
