NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — One of Tennessee’s three new Republican congressmen is our guest on INSIDE POLITICS this week. Dr. Mark Green represents the 7th District and is a former State Senator and Representative from Clarksville.
We discuss how he is adjusting to Washington, amid speculation he might seek the U.S. Senate seat of Lamar Alexander who is retiring next year. Green admits he is interested and says he is receiving “100 calls a day” urging him to run. But he adds he has not decided or set a timeline to make decision about a Senate campaign. Green says he is focusing on being the best congressman he can be for his constituents.
We also discuss some of the Congressman’s new legislation to address the growing student loan debt crisis and to amend the U.S. Constitution to limit the number of Supreme Court justices to nine. We also ask him to further clarify his position on the safety of vaccinations.
