Matlock endorsed by chairman of U.S. House Freedom Caucus

Press release from Jimmy Matlock campaign

(Lenoir City, TN) – The Matlock for Congress Campaign announced Wednesday House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) has endorsed Jimmy Matlock in Tennessee’s Second Congressional District.

“Jimmy Matlock is the conservative we can trust to help President Trump drain the swamp in Washington, D.C.,” said Congressman Meadows. “He’s the businessman in the race who understands what it’s like to make a payroll and be accountable to his customers. His record as a state legislator is solidly pro-life and pro-small business, and he’s never supported a tax increase.”

…“I am honored to have earned the endorsement of my friend, Congressman Mark Meadows,” said small businessman Jimmy Matlock. “Congressman Meadows has proven himself to be a man of tremendous character and integrity with unshakable conservative credentials, and I cannot wait to stand alongside him in Congress as we fight to drain the swamp and pass President Trump’s agenda.”

Jimmy Matlock has previously also been endorsed by retiring Second District Congressman Jimmy Duncan.

Note: The House Freedom Caucus is a group of staunchly conservative congressmen with Tennessee’s Rep. Scott DesJarlais among its members and does not make endorsements as an entity itself. The caucus is frequently at odds with more moderate Republican congressmen — a very recent example being in the failure Wednesday of an immigration bill on the House floor. See Politico report HERE.
