CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -– Congressman Allen West (R-FL), a 1983 graduate of The University of Tennessee, has endorsed Congressman Chuck Fleischmann.
In a video announcement, West said:
"I am proud to endorse my friend, Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, for the House of Representatives in Tennessee's 3rd District. Chuck is a proven conservative, and a fighter who I've worked alongside with as we've fought to repeal ObamaCare, get our country's fiscal house in order, create conditions for private-sector job growth, and stop the destructive agenda of President Barack Obama, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid."
"Congressman West is a national leader on conservative causes, and I am thankful for his support. We have been working every day to rein in government spending, reduce regulations, and to get our economy back on track. I look forward to continuing this work with Congressman West," Fleischmann said.

Rep. Fleischmann is running against three other candidates for the Republican nomination for Tennessee's Third District: Weston Wamp, Scottie Mayfield and Ron Bhalla.
