I’m a veteran and small business owner fighting to end the corrupting influence of money in politics. I believe guaranteeing health care for every American with Medicare for All will help entrepreneurs by freeing up capital to grow their business and hire more workers. I believe sensible investments in emerging industries will create thousands of new, skilled jobs with good wages, ultimately reducing dependence on government services by closing the income gap. Those jobs will require skills, and people will need the training and education to pursue them. I think every kid deserves a shot at the American Dream. Inspired by my mom’s example as a career educator, I will fight to take Tennessee’s promise of a free college education to every citizen nationwide.

  • Demand Universal Healthcare (DUH) endorsed

    “DUH endorses Marc Whitmire because he supports Medicare for All and understands the benefits, not just to his future constituents but to the business community. We believe he can shine the light of truth to cut through the dark misinformation and lies that dominate the healthcare discussion.”

  • Dan Bolling endorsed

    “Marc opposes the current corruption in Congress, exemplified by the non-Constitutional “requirement” that Members of Congress, our public servants, are forced to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to one of two private, non-constitutional, corporations, (DNC & RNC) for the “privilege” of serving on a Congressional Committee”. I know that’s hard to believe. It’s so so corrupt. But it’s true. Read Congressman Ken Buck’s (R-CO) book, DRAIN THE SWAMP, and/or read the white paper , “The Price Of Power” at IssueOne.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/price-of-Power-final.pdf Divisive political parties, which George Washington, James Madison, and other Founders warned us against - those divisive political parties have overstepped their proper bounds. Don’t get me wrong. Political Parties have every much right to exist as do the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Black Lives Matter, or the Lions Club. But political parties are not mentioned in our US Constitution. They have no more Constitutional right to control Congress than do the Rotary Club & Kiwanis Club (both fine organizations). Marc understands that when they are given more power than the Constitution specifies, the political parties become divisive and unfaithful to the opening words of our Constitution: “We, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union ...” Forming “a more perfect union” is the first priority articulated in the US Constitution. Forming a more perfect union is also Marc’s priority, which is why this writer/supporter, a registered Democrat ( who wants BOTH parties to lose their non-constitutional control of Congress) - that’s why Marc is the RIGHT candidate for every voter who values our Constitution. Unlike his opponent(s), Marc is the only candidate openly committed to working with reformers, like Ken Buck, to end the money-corruption of Congress. And restore government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Marc is a husband, father, veteran who served his country, small businessman, patriot, and a UNITER! We don’t need one more divider. We need Marc.”

  • Nolan Howell endorsed

    “It is time for our parties to share core values. Healthcare, free college, and other human rights should not be partisan. Support Whitmire and Ryerse to make Republicans progressive”

  • Mea Ricks endorsed

    “I grew up with Marc and know his family well. He is genuine, kind and very intelligent! He was raised with an exceptional moral and ethical values which our government needs right now!”

  • Getty Israel endorsed

    “Whitmire represents responsible government, and I believe he will place people over profits. He is a breath of fresh air in a state that is suffocating from Republican politicians.”
