Another Freedom Caucus Congressman Endorses Coleman for Congress


Congressman Tom Garrett (R-VA) Endorses Captain Andy Coleman

TULSA, OK:  Andy Coleman has secured another endorsement by a sitting member of Congress in the race to succeed Congressman Jim Bridenstine (R-OK).  Congressman Tom Garrett, who represents Virginia’s Fifth District, lent his support to Coleman’s campaign.  The surge of support for Coleman – a military veteran of Iraq and former field leader for the Voice of the Martyrs – continues to accelerate as the June 26 primary approaches.

"Andy Coleman's history of serving others makes him well suited to represent the people of Oklahoma's First District,” shared Congressman Garrett.  “Andy will be a strong, reliable voice for Oklahoma and for our Nation."

“Congressman Garrett’s endorsement means a lot to me, and I look forward to serving alongside him as a fellow veteran in U.S. Congress,” stated Coleman.  “Tom’s selfless service to our nation as both a military leader and public servant makes him an important voice to our conservative movement.”

Prior to representing Virginia’s 5th District in Congress, Garrett served for six years on active duty with the United States Army.  Garrett is also the former Commonwealth’s Attorney in Louisa County, Virginia and a former State Senator in the Virginia General Assembly.  In Congress, Garrett has led the charge to reign in federal spending and advance constitutional principles.

Garrett’s endorsement follows a string of high-profile endorsements for Coleman’s campaign, including former U.S. presidential candidate Rick Santorum, Congressman Jody Hice, Dr. Everett Piper, and the Combat Veterans for Congress.

Captain Andy Coleman is seeking the Republican nomination for the open congressional seat in Oklahoma’s First District.  He is an Air Force Academy graduate and former intelligence officer who served in the Middle East.  He is the only candidate in the race with military and national security experience – critical skill sets in short supply in the House.  For six years, Coleman led efforts to aid persecuted Christians in 17 hostile and restricted countries, as the Middle East Regional Director for the Voice of the Martyrs, a Christian ministry based in Bartlesville.  Andy is an attorney, husband, father of three and resides in Owasso, Oklahoma.

[Blogger's note: Congressman Garrett is the second member of the House Freedom Caucus to endorse Coleman. Congressman Jody Hice, who endorsed Coleman last week, is also a Freedom Caucus member.]
