NASHVILLE, TN – Americans for Prosperity Action® announced support for U.S. Rep. Phil Roe’s (TN-01) re-election today, calling Roe a policy champion who is leading on issues that are enabling Tennesseans to improve their lives. AFP Action will use a range of tactics, including get out the vote efforts and targeted digital ads to urge Tennesseans in the 1st district to re-elect Rep. Roe on November 6th.
AFP Action Senior Advisor Tori Venable issued the following statement:
“Rep. Roe is committed to ensuring our veterans have the quality health care they earned and expanding worker freedom to all Americans. From his role in bringing more accountability to the VA to driving the groundbreaking VA MISSION Act, Rep. Roe is a proven leader.”
AFP Action’s support for Rep. Phil Roe was announced alongside its support for Trey Hollingsworth (IN-9), Tom Emmer (MN-06), Mia Love (UT-04), Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), and Mark Meadows (NC-11). The group already has efforts underway to support Rep. Rod Blum (IA-1), Rep. Dave Brat (VA-7), Rep. Ted Budd (NC-13), Rep. Steve Chabot (OH-1), Rep. Will Hurd (TX-23), Rep. Erik Paulsen (MN-3), Rep. Peter Roskam (IL-6), and David Young (IA-3).
U.S. Rep. Phil Roe has consistently led on labor policies that expand opportunity and freedom for Tennesseans. Roe introduced the Employee Rights Act, which would require opt-in permission from union members to use their dues on anything besides collective bargaining.
Rep. Roe also helped pass the VA MISSION Act and VA Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, legislation that expanded accountability within the VA and stabilized the VA’s community care programs.
