DesJarlais to Hold Campaign Kickoff In Winchester On Aug. 7

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Dr. Scott DesJarlais announced Wednesday that he will hold his official campaign kickoff on Wednesday, Aug. 7, in Winchester.

The date marks one year from the Tennessee Republican Primary.

A number of potential contenders have expressed interest in the race, including Weston Wamp, son of former Third District Congressman Zach Wamp.

“My first priority has always been to do my job in Congress, representing the people of Tennessee’s Fourth Congressional District,” said Dr. DesJarlais. “I do not believe that voters elect their leaders to run a perpetual campaign. However, I feel that one year from the primary is an appropriate time to start focusing on the 2014 election.

“My wife Amy and I are incredibly grateful for the strong support we have received from friends all across the Fourth District. Tennesseans know they can count on me to never compromise on independent, conservative principles and that I will always fight for smaller government, less spending and more jobs.”

It will be at 1 p.m. (CST) at the Winchester Courthouse steps, 1 S. Jefferson St.
