Former Congressman Zach Wamp on Wednesday endorsed Manny Sethi for the United States Senate.
Sethi announced this on his Facebook page.
Wamp served in the United States Congress, representing Tennessee’s Third District from 1995 through 2011.
“There are three reasons why I am endorsing Dr. Manny Sethi for Senate,” Wamp said in an emailed press release.
“He is the true conservative in this race, and he will stand for fiscal responsibility when so many others have buckled. He is authentic and he will represent the people of Tennessee, not the establishment, in every decision he makes. Finally, he belongs to a new generation of conservatives who have the chance to lead our country to greater freedom and prosperity. We need more political outsiders and citizen legislators like Dr. Manny Sethi in the U.S. Senate, and that is why I am proud to endorse him.”
Sethi said in the press release that he appreciated Wamp’s support and called him “a true conservative leader in our state and a great representation of East Tennessee.”
“Zach has spent his life fighting for our conservative principles and I’m humbled to have his vote and his support,” Sethi said.
As The Tennessee Star reported earlier this month, former Congressman Ed Bryant endorsed Sethi’s candidacy. Bryant represented Tennessee in the U.S. House of Representatives and served as a magistrate judge for the Western District of Tennessee.
Bryant explained his reasons in a press release.
“It matters who leads, who represents us and our values. We need a senator who won’t forget about West Tennessee,” Bryant said.
“We have the opportunity to send a real conservative to Washington, someone who will stand up for all of Tennessee, which is why I’m endorsing Dr. Manny for Senate.”
As The Tennessee Star also reported, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) endorsed Sethi.
“Tennessee deserves a true conservative who supports President Trump, is pro-liberty, and will fight out-of-control federal spending. I believe Dr. Manny is the right choice. Like me, he’s a physician, not another politician. We need more outsiders in Washington, and I’m proud to endorse him today,” Paul said.
