U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor described U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann on Friday as a person who "hasn't forgotten" conservative principles of "spending down" and "managing down" the federal budget.
"Over the last two years, I have worked side by side with Chuck Fleischmann to get our fiscal house in order, advancing solutions that would reduce our nation's crushing burden of debt and get our economy growing. I have been proud to stand with Chuck as House Republicans have changed the culture in Washington from one that prioritizes spending taxpayer dollars, to one that prioritizes saving them. If we're going to avoid President Obama's future of debt, doubt, and decline - we will need proven conservatives like Chuck Fleischmann in Congress and I’m honored to support him," Congressman Ryan said.
"I am proud to endorse my friend, Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, for the House of Representatives in Tennessee's 3rd District.
"Chuck is a proven conservative, and a fighter who I've worked alongside with as we've fought to repeal ObamaCare, get our country's fiscal house in order, create conditions for private-sector job growth, and stop the destructive agenda of President Barack Obama, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid. We are fighting a battle every day, and every day Chuck is there as we stand together to protect and advance constitutional conservative principles. Chuck is a man of integrity, honesty, and commitment. Chuck is a man running on his record.
"And my being a 1983 graduate of the University of Tennessee, I know Chuck shares the values of the people of East Tennessee, and will continue to stand for you and our great nation in the United States Congress
"I hope you will vote for my friend Chuck Fleischmann on August the 2nd. Steadfast and loyal."
"It is within our power to choose someone to represent us in government that understands it is necessary to limit government interference in the life of its citizens. We have a candidate that we know is honest and stands for the values that have made our state and our country strong and free. We can get behind a candidate that proudly advocates what is right and unashamedly identifies what is wrong! Today, it is my privilege to endorse such a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives for Tennessee’s Third District, Mr. Chuck Fleischmann."
"I appreciate the great job that Chuck has done while in Congress," Representative Keisling said. "Chuck is a conservative who is committed to fixing the problems in Washington and I am honored to support Chuck Fleischmann in his bid to return to Congress."
"Chuck Fleischmann has done an excellent job in Washington," Representative Powers said. "While in Congress, Representative Fleischmann voted for the Protect Life Act, to defund Planned Parenthood, to expand offshore drilling, for the 'Cut, Cap, and Balance' debt reduction plan, and to fully repeal Obamacare – among many others. I am honored to endorse someone who works hard to represent me as a conservative and as a citizen of the great state of Tennessee."
