Diane Black launches campaign for governor — the video

The Tennessean’s report has a description of the video, which includes Black talking about her rise from humble beginnings and her willingness to fight against liberals and “weak-kneed” members of her own party.

“Most people in politics say the right things, but they never fight for the right things,” Black says in the 90-second clip. “They’re too meek or maybe even too weak … I don’t back down. Maybe’s it’s because I grew up in a family where we had nothing or maybe it’s because I was a single mom working in the night-shift as a nurse. It’s just how I’m wired.”

Black, 66, joins the race with the most name recognition of the five leading Republican contenders, polling suggests, and a track record of championing conservative causes in Congress.

…She touts her pro-life record and how she fought against a GOP-led state income tax plan when she was a state lawmaker.

“I believe in secure borders and tough choices in cutting spending and beating the liberals instead of caving into them,” she says.

…Black is one of the wealthiest members of Congress. In 2013, the assets of Black and her husband David Black, who in November retired as CEO of Aegis Sciences Corp., were valued at nearly $150 million.
