Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn on Monday endorsed Donald Trump for president, adding to the growing list of elected Republican officials endorsing the former president.
“Under President Trump, our economy is thriving, gas prices are low, and inflation is under control. Our order is secure, our adversaries fear us, and our military is strong,” said Sen. Blackburn, R-Tenn., in a tweet Monday.
“I’m proud to endorse Donald Trump for President and can’t wait until he’s back in the White House,” he said.
