Fleischmann Backed By Prominent Christian Leader Kay Arthur

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Congressman Chuck Fleischmann announced today that he has received the endorsement of Chattanooga resident and Christian author and Bible teacher Kay Arthur.

 "As a private citizen, who has studied God’s word inductively for over 40 years, I am greatly concerned for the future of America," said Ms. Arthur. "We desperately need mature, tested, proven men and women of conviction who fear God more than man that will stand without compromise for biblical principles fighting for us in Washington. We’re fortunate to have just that man, which is why I am publicly endorsing Chuck Fleischmann for Congress. Chuck’s consistent example and voting record are known quantities I can trust."

 "It is truly special to have the support of someone who commands as much respect and admiration as Kay Arthur come out and say that she supports my vision for America," said Rep. Fleischmann. "We share a steadfast belief that our country is one nation under God, and that only by defending and advancing the Christian values that guided our Founding Fathers can we maintain American exceptionalism."
