Former Ambassador to Uruguay Frank Baxter Endorses Carla Sands for U.S. Senate

Former Ambassador to Uruguay Frank Baxter announced his endorsement of Ambassador Carla Sands for the United States Senate.

“Carla has shown time and time again that she has the backbone to take on anyone on behalf of the American people. She is the only candidate with the international defense and foreign policy experience and the only one who has actually worked to deter China and Russia and been to NATO. For that reason, she is the only candidate in this race who is ready on day one,” said Ambassador Baxter. “With the international stage we see today, it’s crucial that we nominate someone who can keep this seat in Republican hands to put a check on Biden’s incompetent foreign policies and be a check on China and Russia.”

While serving as Ambassador to Uruguay, Baxter increased trade and built bridges between our two nations.

Ambassador Baxter joins the growing list of Bush and Trump Administration officials who have put their support behind Carla, signaling their confidence in her to represent conservative policies.

Trump administration officials who have endorsed Carla include Former Ambassador to Jamaica Don Tapia, Former Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, Former Ambassador to the Dominican Republic Robin Bernstein, Former Ambassador to Finland Bob Pence, Former Ambassador to Croatia Robert Kohorst, Former Ambassador to Hungary David Cornstein, Former Ambassador to Portugal George Glass, Former Ambassador to Romania Adrian Zuckerman, Former Ambassador to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg Randy Evans, Former Ambassador to France and Monaco Jamie McCourt, Former Ambassador to New Zealand Scott Brown, Former Ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein Ed McMullen, Former Ambassador to South Africa Lana Marks, and Former Ambassador to the Netherlands Pete Hoekstra. Former Ambassador to the Holy See Callista Gingrich, Former Ambassador and National Security Advisor Robert C. O’Brien, and Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich also endorsed Carla.
