Statement from Congressman Mark Green

Since I was 17 years old on The Plain at West Point taking the Oath of Office to serve our nation, I’ve dedicated my life to serving the ideals of our great country, its people, and its greatest needs.

Over the past several months, I’ve been honored and humbled by everyone asking me to run for the U.S. Senate. As Camie and I have prayed about how to best use our time and resources, I do not plan to seek election to the U.S. Senate in 2020.

Over the next two years, the most important fight for the future of our country is helping our President win re-election. The second most important fight will be winning back Republican control of the U.S. House of Representatives. I will be doing everything I can to help win these fights, and look forward to serving in a new Republican majority in 2021 with President Trump in his second term.

I am looking forward to continuing to represent the people of Tennessee by defending the Constitution and supporting the President, stopping abortion and protecting religious freedom, helping President Trump build the wall and end illegal immigration, standing with our troops and supporting our veterans, and stopping the threat of socialism from destroying America.
