Former Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey Endorses Marsha Blackburn in U.S. Senate Race

Just a few days after nearly twenty current Republican Tennessee State Senators endorsed Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn in her race for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate a former State Senator has joined her team as well.

Former Tennessee Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey expressed his support for Blackburn in a tweet earlier today:

“I’m proud to support my good friend @VoteMarsha and join grassroots supporters that make up #TeamMarsha. We fought the state income tax together and I know that she will take that same conservative spirit to put Tennessee first all the way to the U.S. Senate. I #StandWithMarsha.”

Ramsey, a Republican from Blountville, served as the 49th Lt. Governor of Tennessee and Speaker of the State Senate from 2007 to 2017. He was the first Republican to serve as Speaker of the Senate after140 years of Democratic Party control. He was succeeded by current Republican Lt. Governor Randy McNally (Oak Ridge).

Current U.S. Senator Bob Corker announced his decision not to seek reelection for a third term last September. However, he has recently indicated that he is “reconsidering” his decision.
