"It is my pleasure to be among the many conservatives who are supporting Grant Starrett for United States House of Representatives for Tennessee's 4th Congressional District.

"For years, I've prayed for leaders who will help America return to its Judeo-Christian foundation. Grant is a key part of the next generation of conservative leaders who will protect life from conception and uphold our values.

Statement from Grant Starrett, Republican Candidate for Congress in Tennessee's 4th Congressional District:

"I'm honored to receive the endorsement of ​James Dobson, one of the most influential Christian leaders in America. Our country faces a moral crisis, and the federal government is an active contributor when it discourages work and marriage while financing abortionists. With the prayers and support of conservatives like James Dobson and voters across the 4th District, I'll fight the madness in Washington and restore Constitutional order."
