Sheriff-Elect Eric Watson announced his endorsement of Jim Tracy over incumbent Scott DesJarlais in Tennessee’s 4th Congressional District Republican primary.
The Tracy campaign got earlier endorsements from Cleveland Mayor Tom Rowland, State Rep. Kevin Brooks, and former Congressman Van Hilleary.
“Jim is the type of person we need in Washington,” said Sheriff Watson. “Now more than ever we need people on the federal level that listen and work with people at the state and local level. If I have an issue, all I have to do is call Jim Tracy on his cell phone. Jim not only listens, but he works to get results. I encourage you to get out and vote for Jim Tracy in the republican primary during early voting or on election Day Aug. 7.”
“Eric Watson has been a great colleague at the state legislature, and now he will make a great Sheriff for Bradley County,” said Jim Tracy. “I couldn’t be more honored to have Eric’s endorsement and support on our leadership team. I look forward to working with him in Bradley County if I am elected to serve the 4th District in congress.”
