Former State Rep. Joe Carr is challenging incumbent Tennessee Sixth Congressional District Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) 67% in the Republican primary. The vote will be in August.
Carr, who narrowly lost to Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) 19% in the 2014 Republican U.S. Senate primary in the Volunteer State, says Black is not a conservative.
The winner of that primary is expected to easily win the Congressional seat in the heavily Republican district in Novembers general election.
Millions of Republicans across the country have voted overwhelmingly to reject the business as usual insider games in Washington. We have elected Republican majorities in the House and Senate and have seen little if any real change, Carr said in his announcement.
Establishment insider Diane Black has fully embraced that broken system, and I am confident that the voters of the 6th Congressional District who have supported outsiders like Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% and Ben Carson with 75% of the vote in this District will unite to make a change in our congressional representation this August, he added.
