U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn Endorses State Senator Jack Johnson for Re-Election

U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) endorsed State Senator Jack Jackson (R-Franklin) in his bid for another term in the Tennessee General Assembly.

Over the course of his campaign, he has picked up other endorsements from the NRA Political Victory Fund and the National Federation of Independent Business.

“Jack Johnson epitomizes everything we love about Tennessee. He is an unapologetic conservative who is not shy about standing up for our values. I’m grateful for Jack’s service to Tennessee, and I’m proud he is my state senator. He has consistently fought to lower taxes, defend our constitutional rights, ensure every parent has a voice in their child’s education, and protect our most vulnerable,” Senator Blackburn said in an emailed statement. “Tennessee must continue to elect strong conservative leaders, like Jack. I look forward to casting my vote for Jack, and I encourage all my friends and neighbors to join me in supporting Jack Johnson in the Republican Primary.”

In addition to the endorsement, Blackburn will join Johnson at his annual fundraising event, alongside Governor Bill Lee and Lieutenant Governor Randy McNally.

“I am honored to have the support of Tennessee’s great Senator Marsha Blackburn in my re-election campaign, and I’m grateful to call her a friend,” Johnson added. “Senator Blackburn and I have worked together to defend our Tennessee, conservative values and fight for the people of our great state, and I’m asking you for the opportunity to continue doing exactly that. I look forward to continuing our fight to ensure Tennessee’s best days are ahead of us. I hope that I can earn your trust and support.”

The incumbent senator, who has been routinely re-elected, is facing GOP primary challenger Gary Humble, the executive director for Tennessee Stands.

Humble previously claimed he opted to run due to the lack of “strong leadership representing the people.”

    Hey TN Star, how about a story about Jack’s challenger. I’d like to see my options other than Johnson who I know I won’t be voting for. I did go to Humble’s website but maybe you could get a bit more information.

    Johnson is a professional politician and actor. Since he resides in WIlliamson County, he’s playing the role of a Republican. He will vote the Chamber of Commerce line and stomp his feet and nothing more on social issues. If he happened to live in Davidson County, he would have no problem whatsoever running as a Democrat and being a liberal. That’s what professional politicians and actors do, they play a role. That his wife was able to parlay his political job into a judgeship was just gravy for the Johnson family.

    Personally, I have nothing against Jack, however I have a lot of problems with our current Rockefeller Republican leadership and the responses we have had with regards to the COVID-19 Plandemic and the rollout of the so-called “Vaccine.” Senator Ron Johnson seems to be the only one that really cares about getting to the truth of the matter.

    Of course, with HCA based here, and Vanderbilt housing Principle Investigators for Big Pharma, we knew lobbying would be fierce.

    The masking fiasco started at HCA in 2009, to increase staff uptake of the annual flu shots. We are referred to it as the ‘mask of shame.’ It was a coercion measure that big Pharma obviously learned from.

    It’s sad to see a us all slip into fascist medicine; a system which is not based in sound science but rather propaganda and advertising. That money obviously makes it back into political campaigns, as evidenced by. It’s a shame we can’t get back to evidence based medicine.
