Tennessee U.S. Senators Marsha Blackburn (R) and Bill Hagerty (R) have thrown their support behind former President Donald Trump in the upcoming 2024 election.
The conservative lawmakers both released statements a few days after Trump met with GOP leaders at a Republican National Committee fundraising retreat in Nashville.
The Republican pair was named to the Trump 2024 Tennessee Federal Leadership Team with TN Reps. Chuck Fleischmann, Mark Green, John Rose, Diana Harshbarger, and former Rep. Jimmy Duncan.
Hagerty touted the former President’s accomplishments during his administration. Read below the statement released Sunday:
Under President Trump, our border was secure, our nation was energy independent, & we witnessed a Blue-Collar Boom that lifted up American workers of all backgrounds. Under President Trump’s leadership, we engaged with strength, & we encouraged our allies to stand strong with us. President Trump stood up against Communist China, brought an end to Obama’s failed approach of ‘leading from behind,’ and revived our military and law enforcement as they witnessed support from their Commander-in-Chief that had been lacking—and has now gone missing again after two years of Joe Biden’s presidency. The mandate for a strong America has never been clearer, and I look forward to working again with President Trump to help our great nation find its way back from the precipice to the exceptional role we can and must play as a nation.
Blackburn released her own statement Monday,
Under President Trump, our economy was booming, gas prices were low, and inflation was under control. Our border was secure, our adversaries feared us, & our military was strong. I am proud to endorse Donald Trump for President and can’t wait until he’s back in the White House.
