Tuesday, retired United States Air Force Lieutenant General, Thomas McInerney announced his support for Terri Hasdorff for Congress in Alabama’s 2 nd Congressional District.
“I am deeply proud to endorse my good friend, Terri Hasdorff, Republican candidate for Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District,” Gen. McInerney said. “She is a true friend to me and will be a true friend to the United States military in Congress. Terri believes that a strong U.S. military is critical to a lasting peace. When elected, she will be a tireless champion on the Armed Services Committee for giving our intrepid warriors the resources they need. A true conservative, a steadfast patriot, and a woman of strong Christian faith, Terri has the experience and skills needed to represent Alabamians with excellence and make them proud.”
“Throughout my life, I have helped people come together, work together, break bread together, and solve problems together in community,” Hasdorff said.
“I will work to bring people together in Congress who share our beliefs on the sanctity of life and marriage, First and Second Amendment rights, the power of the free market, and the sovereignty and the security of America,” Hasdorff promised. “These times call for a representative in Congress with the experience, the savvy, and the will to stand and fight and win the battle for America. I will be that representative. And together, we will tame Washington and
revive our land.”
Hasdorff worked in the White House Office of Public Liaison in the George H.W. Bush (R) Administration. There she worked with faith leaders across the country. She worked on Capitol Hill for six years where her most meaningful assignments focused on keeping the government and Washington, D.C. elites from discriminating against churches and faith-based organizations. Hasdorff worked on the Ten Commandments Defense Act, defending the right of states to display the Ten Commandments in courthouses and public places. She served as a senior advisor on the Charitable Choice language, which put the Faith-Based initiative into law and still protects faith based organizations from discrimination when accessing federal funding. Hasdorff has worked on pro-life, pro-family legislation. Terri also worked in the George W. Bush Administration as America’s faith-based representative to the world. Hasdorff graduated from Samford University.
General McInerney served in top roles under the Vice President of the United States and under the Secretary of Defense.
Terri Hasdorff is running in a crowded GOP Second Congressional District field. Incumbent Congresswoman Martha Roby (R-Montgomery) is not running for another term.
The Republican Primary is March 3.
