Larry Crim Announces U.S. Senate 2018 Race For Seat Held By Corker

Thursday, November 10, 2016
Larry Crim, CEO of Christian Counseling Centers of America Inc., has announced his candidacy for U.S. Senate in 2018 for the seat currently held by Senator Bob Corker.  Mr. Crim, who earlier filed his Statement of Candidacy with the U.S. Senate on Oct. 13, said he chose this veteran’s day week after the presidential election to announce in order to “focus the public’s attention on the importance of honoring our nation’s commitments to our country’s veterans and uniting in the cause of protecting freedom and America first for which they fought.”

Candidate Crim said, “As we’ve elected our President and celebrate Veteran’s Day it is more important than ever to join as one nation to honor our country’s veterans and protect the security of Americans.
That is what Tennesseans said they wanted in a President. That is what Tennesseans are telling me they want in a U.S. Senator. That is the job I’m seeking – to be the voice for Tennesseans in the United States Senate.”
 Mr. Crim, who serves as president of Veterans Comprehensive Network Inc., has proposed a federal Veterans Benefit Assurance Act and supports Tennessee legislation to coordinate resources for veterans.

Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee has also filed with the Secretary of the U.S. Senate his Statement of Candidacy for the U.S. Senate race to be held in 2018.  Mr. Corker has been recommended by Senator Lamar Alexander and others as a potential cabinet appointee for Secretary of State under President-Elect Trump. To date President-Elect Trump has not announced whether or not Senator Corker is under consideration for the post. Senator Corker has said it is too early to speculate. 

Mr. Crim will run statewide in the Republican primary for the seat held by Bob Corker on Aug. 2, 2018.

Chattanooga's Shooting Epidemic

These shootings continue and something has to be done to try and stop them whether they are domestic, robbery or gang related. We obviously can not remove these handguns from every man, woman and child. I suggest that merchants that sell handguns raise the minimum age to 21 years for the purchase of handgun ammunition only. This 21 age requirement would not include ammunition ... (click for more)
