From https://www.blackburn.senate.gov/veterans : “Our nation stands as a firm beacon of liberty because of the powerful sacrifices our veterans have made to preserve our freedom. We must ensure that no veteran is left behind when his or her service comes to an end, while also providing the assistance needed to succeed in the civilian sector. Tennesseans have a distinctive record of service to our nation, and it is our obligation to ensure that all veterans are receiving the benefits and high quality care they were promised. As a member on the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, I am committed to upholding this nation’s promise to protect and care for the men and women who have served our country” said Marsha Blackburn
VFAF is announcing the endorsement of Senator Marsha Blackburn for her 2024 re-election campaign.
As a member of the House, Blackburn took a strongly conservative stance on most issues. She supported tax cuts and a proposal for a constitutional amendment that would require the federal government to maintain a balanced budget. She was outspoken in her opposition to abortion rights and in her support for Republican efforts to defund the family planning organization Planned Parenthood Federation of America. She served on the House Committee on the Budget and as the chair of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce’s Subcommittee on Communications and Technology. She was reelected to the House seven times.
During the 2016 U.S. presidential election cycle, Blackburn endorsed the candidacy of Donald Trump, who won the Republican nomination and ultimately the election. She later served on the executive committee of Trump’s presidential transition team.
