Opinion | 'Dirt' says Green will be our champion in Congress
Why Dr. Mark Green for Congress? Easy answer. My name is Dirt. I was born on a West Tennessee rural route. I’ve been poor — as a child I lived on a dirt floor — and I’ve been what I thought was rich.
I’ve seen it all: I’ve been a Memphis club singer, won a bunch of battle of the bands, was a fishing guide, hosted an outdoor TV program ("Hunting University"), and now I own of one of the largest shooting supply distribution operations on the planet (Midsouth Shooters Supply).
I’ve met a lot of people along the way, and few have been as fine as Mark Green. I’ve spent countless hours with Mark — many of them in a duck blind — and I’ve gotten to know the real Mark Green. Mark is a product of hardworking, Bible-believing parents in rural Mississippi. Like me, he didn’t start with much, but he always aimed high and worked hard. Today, he is a successful doctor, legislator and business leader.
