WASHINGTON, D.C., July 31, 2017 – U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on the retirement of U.S. Representative John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-Tenn.):

“I am proud that Jimmy Duncan has served Tennessee’s 2nd district and been my congressman for nearly three decades – and has been recognized as the most conservative member of the House for about that long. No one has done a better job of staying in touch with his constituents than Jimmy has. He has dedicated his life to service – both in Congress and as a member of the Army National Guard – and Honey and I thank Jimmy and Lynn and their family for their dedication to our state.”

Congressman Duncan was Alexander’s campaign chairman when he ran for re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2014.
