Republican gubernatorial candidate Rep. Diane Black (R-TN-06) received an early Christmas present in the form of a donation from Vice President Mike Pence’s leadership PAC, Great American Committee, the campaign announced in a statement on Tuesday.

Black tweeted her appreciation for the support later that afternoon:

Along with the donation was a letter of encouragement from Mr. Pence.

“President Donald Trump and I are grateful for your steadfast support, your principled leadership, and your strong stand with our administration. It’s remarkable to think about everything we’ve accomplished in partnership with leaders like you,” it begins.

The letter continues on Great America Committee letterhead:

We’re keeping our promise to Make America Prosperous Again. We’ve slashed regulations at a record pace, unleashed American energy, and laid the groundwork for historic tax cuts, infrastructure reform, and more. Noe the American economy is roaring once again.

And to Make America Safe Again, our administration is rebuilding our military, supporting out veterans, standing with the men and women of law enforcement, and restoring the credibility of American power across the wider world.

But as the President likes to say, that’s just what we call a good start, We need fighters like you to continue to partner with our administration as we deliver on what the American people elected us to do.

We stand with those who stand with us, which is why I have enclosed a contribution to your campaign from my leadership PAC.

With your continued partnership, and with the strong leadership of President Donald Trump we will finish what we’re started – and together, we will Make America Great Again.

Very sincerely,

Michael R. Pence
Vice President of the United States

While not an explicit endorsement, the donation is a clear signal to the crowded Republican field whom one top member of the Trump administration prefers.

Black is one on six Republican candidates running to replace Governor Bill Haslam, who is termed out. The other candidates include former State Sen. Mae Beavers (R-Mt. Juliet), Tennessee House Speaker Beth Harwell (R-Nashville), Williamson County businessman Bill Lee, Knoxville businessman Randy Boyd, and Johnson City realtor Kay White.

    But lets not forget Diane Black was one of the orginal Never Trumpers and that Mae Beavers was for Trump early on and was a delegate for him. She was elected Chairman of the Tennessee Delegation that attebded the GOP Convention and cast the balkots for Trump!

    Not sure why the Vice President would ant to contribute to a state level campaign. Congressman Black is not the one needed to change the liberal leanings of the Tennessee state government. She is a better fit with the elitist GOP D. C. swamp creatures.
