David Avella, Chairman of GOPAC, announced the endorsement of Dr. Mark Green’s candidacy for U.S. House today. Since 1978, GOPAC has advanced a new generation of Republican leaders at both the federal and state level through its education and election programs.
“Because of Dr. Green’s active involvement in our programs, we can attest to his dedication to advancing ideas to make our lives easier, safer and better. His medical background of taking care of soldiers in combat as well as founding a healthcare company will bring a much-needed perspective to the conversation of fixing our broken healthcare system. Further, his work to end the Hall Income Tax will serve him well as President Trump and Congress push to give Americans a pay raise by reducing the federal tax burden.” commented Avella.
“The GOPAC Election Fund is focused on assisting GOPAC-affiliated state legislators running for federal office in their Primary and General Elections,” continued Avella. “Our endorsement includes receiving the maximum allowable federal contribution. In addition, GOPAC members and followers will be encouraged to donate directly to Dr. Green. We will also consider bolstering him through independent expenditures that will exclusively tout his biography and ideas for addressing the challenges facing America.”
Dr. Green was selected by GOPAC in 2013 to participate in its prestigious national Emerging Leaders program. With its endorsement, GOPAC joins the coalition of conservatives who have quickly coalesced behind his campaign for Congress. Specifically, over 100 conservative leaders across Tennessee recently endorsed his campaign, along with prominent national leaders like U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, Dr. Arthur B. Laffer, and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum.
“GOPAC has been a force in American politics for a long time and many members of Congress count themselves as alumni. I value the involvement I have had with GOPAC and am delighted to have earned this endorsement. Our campaign will benefit from the support of the organization’s nationwide network,” remarked Green.
