I have decided to endorse Lt. Gov. Ramsey for Governor. He believes in many of the same things I do, such as strong second and tenth amendments and the importance of limited government. He is strongly pro-life.
Mayor Haslam is a good man, but I believe that Lt. Governor Ramsey is better suited for the job. Mr. Haslam’s membership in the Mayors Against Illegal Guns coalition (an anti-second amendment group) was a bad move. It causes me to question his judgment. Mr. Haslam recently distanced himself from the group in preparation for his run for the governorship. There are also serious questions regarding Mayor Haslam’s automatic conflicts of interest should he become governor.
You’re either for the constitution’s protections or you’re not. Lt. Gov. Ramsey believes in the constitution as it was written, not the ‘living, breathing’ variety.
