State Representative Kevin Brooks announced today his endorsement of Jim Tracy over incumbent Scott DesJarlais in Tennessee’s 4th congressional district republican primary. Representative Brooks joins Mayor Rowland of Cleveland, former Congressman Van Hilleary and a long list of other supporters on Jim Tracy’s leadership team.
“Jim is a man of integrity, a man of spirit and a man of faith,” said Representative Brooks. “I have served with Jim in the Tennessee General Assembly, and believe that Jim will serve admirably in Washington. Join me in supporting Jim Tracy for Congress as early voting begins July 18th.”
“I am honored to have Representative Brooks support,” said Jim Tracy. “Kevin has not only been a good colleague to work with in the General Assembly, but also a good friend. Trena and I could not be more thankful for his support and encouragement.”
Meanwhile in the DesJarlais camp, reports indicate he has been endorsed by the NRA...
The National Rifle Association (NRA) has endorsed Congressman Scott DesJarlais in the Republican primary for Tennessee’s Fourth Congressional District.
According to the NRA, Congressman DesJarlais has earned an “A” rating from the organization for his “consistent and proven voting record” of supporting Second Amendment rights and in opposition to President Obama’s gun control agenda.
“I am honored to have received this endorsement by the NRA, an organization supported by gun owners all across Tennessee’s Fourth Congressional District,” said Congressman DesJarlais. “When I ran for Congress, I promised I would never compromise when it came to protecting our right to keep and bear arms. I am proud to have held the line time and time again against the Obama administration’s unconstitutional attempts to curtail our Second Amendment rights.”
