NASHVILLE -- Conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham will headline a rally for Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Joe Carr in his GOP primary challenge to Sen. Lamar Alexander.
An anti-Alexander group, Beat Lamar, said Ingraham, who announced her all-out support for Carr on her program on Monday, will speak at the Restore America: Joe Carr for Senate on July 22 at 7 p.m. The event is at the Millenium Maxwell Hotell in Nashville.
In the group's release, Ingraham was quoted saying, "Tennessee is one of the most beautiful states in America, and deserves a Senator who would rather spend his time with Tennesseans at Cracker Barrel than with lobbyists at elite Washington eateries."
She said with "tens of millions in our country still out of work and the border crisis worsening, citizens across America are waking up to the shocking failures of the Washington establishment that Lamar Alexander calls home. Electing Joe Carr will be a major victory in this new movement to restore America.
Beat Lamar is a project of the Real Conservatives National Committee, an independent expenditure "super" PAC located in Spring Hill, Tenn.
