NASHVILLE - The Joe Carr for Senate Campaign announced the endorsement of Middle Tennessee Senator Joey Hensley (R-Hohenwald).
“Washington has all but abandoned working families in Middle Tennessee and we need a conservative leader like Joe Carr who will work with us to combat the growing intrusion of big government in our lives,” said Senator Joey Hensley. “I see it a lot; where over time someone loses their way and becomes too Washington. Senator Alexander has unfortunately fallen into that trap and it’s time that we hit the reset button and have a true conservative fighter standing up for all of us. Having built a strong working relationship with Representative Joe Carr in the Tennessee State Legislature, I know that Joe Carr can be that fighter and champion for all of us."
“I am honored that from all parts of Tennessee, the representatives who are closest to the people are joining our campaign against the broken status-quo,” said Representative Carr. “It’s clear that Senator Alexander has been co-opted by the Washington establishment, and the people of Middle Tennessee are ready for a change in leadership. Senator Hensley knows that I will not forget where I come from or abandon the fight to strengthen our conservative leadership in Washington.”
Senator Hensley represents the 28th Senate District covering Giles, Lawrence, Lewis, Maury, Perry, and Wayne Counties.
Senator Hensley joins a growing list of state legislators who are backing Carr’s bid for Senate. In recent weeks, the campaign has announced the endorsement of Senator Niceley (R-Strawberry Plains) and Reps. Holt (R-Dresden), Sanderson (R-Kenton), and Wirgau (R-Buchanan).
