Victoria Jackson Endorses Zelenik For Congress

A former Saturday Night Live star has endorsed a Republican primary challenger running for Congress in Tennessee. While Victoria Jackson might be remembered for her stint on SNL in the late ’80s and early ’90s, she’s since rebranded herself as a conservative commentator.

Today Jackson threw her support behind Lou Ann Zelenik, who hopes to unseat Gallatin Republican Diane Black in this summer’s GOP primary. Both Jackson and Zelenik have been outspoken critics of a mosque in Murfreesboro expanding to a larger facility.
