Coalition Includes Over 1,200 Veterans From Across Tennessee

Nashville, TN —Following the release of a detailed plan to support Tennessee’s veterans and ensure they receive quality care in a timely manner, Bill Hagerty today announced the Veterans for Hagerty coalition that includes over 1,200 Tennessee veterans from all branches of our distinguished military who strongly support Bill for U.S. Senate.

“Our nation’s veterans have sacrificed so much to guarantee our freedoms, and it is critical that they are fully supported,” said Bill Hagerty. “As your next Senator, I will continue to work alongside President Trump to ensure our veterans are equipped with the tools they need to transition successfully into civilian life. This coalition represents some of Tennessee’s best, who have fought bravely for our freedoms, and I am honored to have them on Team Hagerty.”

“I am proud to join many other veterans across Tennessee in supporting Bill Hagerty for the United States Senate because he will stand alongside President Trump to support our veterans and make sure they have access to quality health care and job opportunities,” said Deputy Speaker Curtis Johnson. “The transition into civilian life can be difficult, especially when they are denied proper assistance and care. Together, Bill and President Trump, who has endorsed him for the U.S. Senate, will work together to fix our broken VA system and support our veterans.”

“I feel strongly that we need to elect somebody to the Senate who understands veterans, understands their needs and will hold the VA accountable for its delivery of services to veterans coming back from the front,” John Mather, United States Army. “I think it’s necessary to think seriously about somebody who’s been around these issues for a long time and elect him to the Senate and also support our Tennessee values. I’m Team Hagerty.”
