NASHVILLE, TN — Donald J. Trump Jr. announced today that Bill Hagerty, President Trump-endorsed candidate for U.S. Senate in Tennessee, has been named MAGA candidate of the week.

“Bill was a part of Team Trump before it was politically convenient. He volunteered full-time to get my father elected president, and now we’re helping him get to the United States Senate because we need more conservative business-minded leaders to help get our economy going again,” said Donald Trump Jr. “Bill understands what it takes to grow an economy and create jobs. He’s done it before and he’ll do it again in the Senate. In fact, he’s already working with President Trump to bring our supply chains back from China so we can make Made in the USA the theme of our nation. I’m proud to stand with my father in support of Bill Hagerty – he’s the true Trump conservative.”

“I’m grateful for Donald Trump Jr.’s continued support, and in the Senate, I am going to work closely with President Trump to put America – and Tennessee – first,” said Bill Hagerty. “Back in January, Don Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle came to my hometown of Gallatin to campaign with us and open our campaign headquarters. I will always fight for our conservative values, and I’m going to make the Trump family and the good people of Tennessee proud.”

Bill volunteered full-time in 2016 as Donald Trump’s Tennessee Victory Chair, where Donald Trump won 92 Tennessee counties. After Donald Trump resoundingly won the presidency, Bill served as a senior leader of the Trump transition team. Bill quickly earned the President’s seal of approval and was tapped to serve as the United States Ambassador to Japan, the third-largest economy in the world and one of America’s strongest allies. More recently, President Trump personally asked Bill to rejoin his Administration to serve as a member of the Great American Economic Revival Industry Groups, the task force working to get our economy going again and bring our supply chains back from China.
