The state's top Republican elected officials and other Republican leaders are flocking to endorse Jim Tracy in his bid to unseat Scott DesJarlais in the 4th Congressional District. Desjarlais is a doctor and an avowed pro-life Republican who had an affair with a patient and pressured her to get an abortion when she became pregnant. He also talked his wife into having two abortion. Jim Tracy has a substantial lead over DesJarlais in fund raising.
Those who have joined Tracy's "Leadership Team" include Betty and Governor Winfield Dunn, Sindy and Lieutenant Governor and Speaker of the Senate Ron Ramsey, Speaker Pro Tempore Bo Watson, Chris and Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris, Theresa and Senate Republican Caucus Chairman Bill Ketron, State Senator Randy McNally, State Senator Rusty Crowe, State Senator Steve Southerland, Deanna and State Senator Jack Johnson, Speaker of the House Beth Harwell, House Majority Leader Gerald McCormick,House Republican Caucus Chairman Glen Casada,Speaker Pro Tempore Curtis Johnson and a whole bunch more.
