Scottie Mayfield, popular dairy spokesman who previously ran for Congress, on Monday morning endorsed Rep. Chuck Fleischmann for re-election.  

Mr. Mayfield, whose family owns Mayfield Dairy at Athens, Tn., said he had not planned to get involved in this campaign.  He said he decided to do so after he was told that another campaign was saying he was supporting it.  

Mr. Mayfield said, "I felt he was the best candidate for this district.  I was planning to vote for him.  I think he's done a really good job for this district."

Mr. Mayfield and Rep. Fleischmann appeared together at a press conference at the Doubletree Hotel on Chestnut Street.

He will be the honorary chairman for the Fleischmann campaign.  He said he does not expect to go on the campaign trail very often.  

Rep. Fleischmann called it "an honor" to get the endorsement.  

Weston Wamp, son of former 3rd District Congressman Zach Wamp, is again running against Rep. Fleischmann.
