STATEMENT: Megan Barry Reacts to Mark Green’s Un-Retirement

“Today, Mark Green changed his mind and decided to run for a job that just two weeks ago he said he didn’t want - just because his party bosses told him to.

Green said himself what his bosses know, that my campaign is mounting a serious threat to flip this seat blue.

Green’s flip-flop is just more of the same chaos and incompetence that has marked his time in Congress. As I said when I announced my campaign for this seat: Mark Green has failed to address the most pressing problems our families are facing. Green said he was leaving behind a broken Congress - dysfunction that he and his fellow extremists in the House Freedom Caucus are responsible for.

Further, Mark Green is cosponsor of a constitutional amendment capping Congressional terms at three, yet he’s now running for his fourth term. So Green is not just running for a job he clearly said he doesn’t want, he’s also seeking a job he thinks the Constitution should bar him from having. 

I remain in this race to fight for reproductive freedom and access to affordable healthcare, and to give Middle Tennessee families a voice in Congress for an economy that works for all. These families deserve representation in Washington from someone who actually wants the job.”
