South Pittsburg, TN – Today Congressman Scott DesJarlais, M.D. (TN-04) officially filed for reelection with the Tennessee State Division of Elections.
“I am once again asking for the honor of representing the people of Tennessee’s Fourth Congressional District in Congress,” said Congressman DesJarlais. “In Washington, I have been proud to help lead the charge in cutting spending, reining in government and repealing ObamaCare. While my independent, conservative voting record may not curry favor with the Washington political establishment, I believe my constituents appreciate my unwillingness to compromise on constitutional principles.”
Congressman DesJarlais was recently ranked as the fourth most conservative member of the United States House of Representatives and the most conservative in Tennessee by National Journal Magazine and was listed by Congressional Quarterly as one of the top five Members of Congress who has consistently voted against President Barack Obama’s agenda. He has received an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA) and a 100% score by the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the oldest and the largest national pro-life organization in the United States.
