Joe Carr dropped out of the 4th Congressional District Race Tuesday at a press conference held in Murfreesboro leaving the race to a head to head matchup between State Senator Jim Tracy and incumbent Scott Desjarlais. Carr is now running for the Senate seat held by Lamar Alexander. Alexander has over $3-million saved up for his campaign. Carr stated at the media event that was held on Tuesday morning...
More on Jim Tracy and his continued campaign:
"I’m focused on running a grassroots, people-first campaign,” said Jim Tracy. The people of the Fourth District are hard-working, honest conservative folks and they deserve a strong and effective voice in Congress, which right now they do not have."
Jim Tracy has dominated the fundraising arena since announcing to run in January and ended the second quarter with over $656,000 cash on hand compared to Desjarlais’ $88,000.
“My decision to run and my campaign have never been about the other candidates in the Fourth Congressional District, it has always been about the people and who they think can best represent them. I’m ready for the challenge and I look forward to the opportunity to serve them in Washington.”
