Just over four years ago, after much prayer and encouragement from many of you, I ran for Congress on the promise of cutting spending, fighting back against Obamacare, and protecting Tennesseans from an out-of-control federal government that has simply forgotten its place.
It's been a tough fight but, together, we've done exactly what we set out to do. During my time in Congress I've never forgotten how I got here or who I work for. That is why I consistently voted to defund and repeal Obamacare, why I cosponsored a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution, and why I even stood against members of my own party to vote NO on legislation giving President Obama a blank check to raise the debt ceiling. This is a start, but I've got plenty of fight left in me, which is why I am proud to declare my candidacy for reelection
Our campaign has already seen great momentum. The respected National Journal just ranked me among the top 15 most conservative Members in Congress. We've also earned an early endorsement from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a pro-life score of 100% from National Right to Life, and the highest rating in the entire House of Representatives for combating illegal immigration from the anti-amnesty group NumbersUSA.
In 2010, you sent me to Congress to wrench Tennessee's 6th district from nearly 30 years of Democrat control and finally bring conservative leadership back to Washington. Those same concerns that motivated me to run for Congress then have led me to offer myself for reelection today, but I can't do it alone. I need your prayers and your support.
With your help, we will take the fight to President Obama and keep Tennessee's 6th District in conservative hands!
