“Camie and I are truly honored by Congressman Marsha Blackburn’s endorsement,“ said Green. “Marsha’s unparalleled service to the 7th District, the State of Tennessee, and to the country is an example for us to follow. I am grateful for her support as well as her advice and look forward to working with her for the people of this district.”
“Mark is the kind of person that we need in the state legislature. We can trust that he will do what needs to be done, not just for this region, but for Tennessee,” said Congressman Blackburn. “It’s an honor for me to be here to support my friend, Dr. Mark Green.”
