U.S. Senate candidate Manny Sethi announced Tuesday that he will begin a 95 county tour in the coming days.
This, according to a press release Sethi put out on his campaign’s website.
“Over the last ten years with our health care nonprofit, Maya and I have visited every corner of the state, and again since kicking off our campaign in June. From now until Election Day on August 6, I will be visiting every county in Tennessee,” Sethi said.
“I believe the way you campaign is the way you will represent. I will represent every person from Mountain City to Memphis, Turtletown to Tiptonville, and I will be visiting every county to share my vision for this state and country.”
Campaign Manager Forrest Barnwell-Hagemeyer said he and members of the Sethi campaign look forward to visiting every county between now and Election Day.
“Tennesseans are looking for a trustworthy, conservative candidate, and Dr. Manny is the candidate who is talking directly to voters and answering their questions,” Barnwell-Hagemeyer said in the press release.
“He’s open, honest, and wants to hear directly from Tennesseans.”
Sethi will visit every county safely, and all events will comply with President Donald Trump’s and Gov. Bill Lee’s guidelines, according to the press release.
As The Tennessee Star reported last year, Sethi, a Republican who wants to replace the retiring U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, said Tennessee voters may rest assured he, if elected, won’t fall in with the Washington D.C. establishment.
And if he does replace Alexander then Sethi said his medical background gives him the skill set he needs to do something a lot of U.S. senators cannot — get his policies enacted into law.
Sethi sat down with The Star last year and described why he thinks grassroots Republicans should pull the lever for him next year.
“I met my wife when I was 16. We have two children, a six-year-old and a three-year-old. I’ve developed a thriving trauma practice in a non-profit. I wouldn’t walk away from that to go up to Washington, D.C. to sell out to some swamp,” Sethi said.
“I’m going out there to keep the American dream alive, the same dream that my parents came here to find. That’s why I’m doing it and that is why the establishment is so scared of me, because they know that I won’t back down. There are things like the debt ceiling. We can’t call ourselves conservatives and spend like we’re spending. We can’t call ourselves conservative when we continue to keep Obamacare alive. That’s crazy. Those are the things I’ll fight for. You have my word.”
