U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN-03) endorsed Bill Hagerty Wednesday for the United States Senate, citing the former ambassador’s business acumen among the reasons for his support.
“Bill Hagerty is a trustworthy conservative businessman, just like President Trump, who has my complete support,” Fleischmann said in the press release.
“Bill’s economic background more than qualifies him for the U.S. Senate. As businesses in Tennessee and around the country begin to open again, we need someone like Bill helping lead our state. Tennesseans will be well-served with Bill in the Senate.”
Hagerty, in the same press release, said he appreciated the congressman’s support.
“He is a good friend, who is working hard alongside President Trump to get our economy back on track and protect our Tennessee conservative values,” Hagerty said.
“I’m grateful for his support, and I hope that Tennesseans give me the opportunity to work with him to strengthen our economy, bring more jobs to our communities, stop illegal immigration, defend our Second Amendment rights, protect the unborn, help build the wall and stand for our law enforcement officers, our military and our veterans.”
As The Star reported last week, Hagerty announced he will host a telephone town hall with conservative political strategist Kellyanne Conway to talk about maintaining the Senate majority and ensuring President Donald Trump has allies in the Senate. The telephone town hall is scheduled for 11 a.m. Eastern Time/10 a.m. Central Time Thursday, June 25, the press release said.
Conway said in a press release that the country needs a Republican Senate majority “to fight back against the increasingly radical agenda of the Democrats.”
