Mark Levin endorsed U.S. Senate candidate Manny Sethi Friday.
This according to an emailed press release that Sethi’s campaign distributed to the media.
“I am endorsing Dr. Manny Sethi,” Levin said in the press release.
“I have kids who live in Tennessee, I have grandkids who live in Nashville. If I lived there, I would be voting for him. That’s the bottom line. I like that he’s a citizen, a serious doctor, he’s a conservative, and he’s not tied to Romney. Tennessee needs him in the Senate. His opponent is tied so closely to Romney, that if he gets into the Senate, you know damn well what will happen.”
As The Tennessee Star reported Saturday, former U.S. Sen Jim DeMint (R-SC) also endorsed Sethi.
“I am endorsing Dr. Manny because Tennessee needs to send a rock solid conservative to DC who will take on the Swamp, fight Amnesty, and stand with President Trump,” DeMint said.
“Dr. Manny is a proven fighter, with the courage to not cave to the Washington Establishment.”
DeMint, known for his work in the Tea Party, is a University of Tennessee graduate and founder of the Senate Conservatives Fund.
“I do not want this country to become like Seattle, Minneapolis, or the countries all over the world that have fallen for the myths of socialism,” Duncan said in a statement on Sethi’s Facebook page.
“Dr. Manny Sethi is an honest, sincere, intelligent conservative who has been taught by his legal immigrant parents to work hard and love and appreciate this country. Tennessee, and more importantly America, needs a man like Dr. Manny in the U.S. Senate.”
As reported last month, former Congressman Zach Wamp also endorsed Sethi. Wamp served in the U.S. Congress, representing Tennessee’s Third District from 1995 through 2011. Also, as reported last 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.
