GOP Rep. Rohrabacher campaigns for Matheny

State Rep. Judd Matheny hasn’t been been able to keep pace with his Republican rivals for the 6th Congressional District nomination so far, but he’s been getting some high-profile endorsements from members of the House Freedom Caucus, including founder Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and now Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.).

Matheny faces John Rose, a former state agriculture commissioner, and Bob Corlew, a former judge, in the Republican contest to succeed Rep. Diane Black, who is running for governor.

A release from the Matheny campaign:

Nashville TN —  The political scene in Tennessee is drawing in big names to endorse candidates in hopes of getting the conservative agenda moving in DC.  With conservative bills stalling or being diluted beyond recognition in congress,  strong conservative voices are jumping in on upcoming elections to help choose the candidates who can help them get the job done.   Even President Trump, the biggest name in politics is hitting the campaign trail to endorse candidates like Marsha Blackburn.  Michael Reagan, the son of Ronald Reagan has stepped out to endorse Judd Matheny for Congress.
Dana Rohrabacher was also spotted traveling to Nashville to campaign for Judd Matheny at the Nashville City Club.  Dana served as a speech writer for Ronald Reagan during his presidency and is now representing California in Congress.  Dana is a member of the House Freedom Caucus and speaks frankly about the urgency of getting the right people elected in the upcoming August primary.  “We are at a critical time in history and we have got to do whatever it takes to save America.  I urge voters to vote for Judd Matheny so he can go to Washington and help save America.  Judd has the courage and proven ability to stand up to the powerful forces that bully congress today.”
The House Freedom Caucus has emerged as the only wall to stop Republicans from caving to the massive pressures brought by the liberal lobby and progressives in Washington.  As we watch our congress crumble on critical issue after critical issue it is apparent the upcoming election is vital to the success of our country.   The House Freedom Caucus was formed by conservative legislators to ban together as a force to stand firm on conservative principles. Many individuals and organizations have stepped out to endorse founding member Jim Jordan to replace Paul Ryan as speaker of the House. As a Representative in the TN State Legislature, Judd Matheny worked to form a caucus using the House Freedom Caucus as the blueprint.  This TN caucus has actively fought for issues like anti-sanctuary city policies, regulation of refugee resettlement, 2nd amendment protection, and others.
Jim Jordan and the House Freedom Caucus have looked into the candidates running for the 6th congressional seat to replace Diane Black.  Judd Matheny is the candidate the caucus says they want to work with in congress.  They know Judd has the experience to hold the line with them and protect against the massive pressures that threaten our country.  Conservatives must stay focused and as Dana put it, “help us save America.”
