Latinos for Tennessee PAC announced its endorsement of State Sen. Dr. Mark Green (R-TN-22) for Congress. Founded to advance faith, family, freedom and fiscal responsibility in the Latino community, the group has many members and supporters throughout the Seventh District.
U.S. Representative Republican Marsha Blackburn currently holds the Seventh Congressional District seat Green wants. She is running for the U.S. Senate against Democrat Phil Bredesen.
Democrat Justin Kanew is running against Green for the Seventh District seat.
In announcing their endorsement, Latinos for Tennessee PAC Executive Director Raul Lopez said, “Senator Green is a selfless patriot who loves our country and has put on the uniform to fight for our precious freedoms. As a veteran himself, Senator Green understands the unique challenges our military and our veterans are facing. Our veterans and their families have had a true champion fighting for them to ensure that they receive the benefits they deserve.”
Speaking about the endorsement, Green said, “Having worked closely with Latinos for Tennessee as a state senator, I’m honored to receive their endorsement. I look forward to continuing the fight alongside Latinos for Tennessee for faith, family, freedom, and fiscal responsibility.”
Green’s campaign continues to pick up support in the final two weeks of the election. Latinos for Tennessee PAC joins Tennessee Right to Life, Tennessee Firefighters Association, more than 20 mayors in the district, and over 60 legislators in supporting Green for Congress. Groups like the National Rifle Association, National Federation of Independent Business and Family Research Council have also announced their endorsement of Green. Tennessee Right to Life also endorsed him.
The Homeschool Legal Defense Association Action PAC last week endorsed Green and said they are only endorsing a few candidates around the country this year. The group cited his pro-family views and homeschool support.
