Sean Hannity speaks at Politicon 2019.

Conservative Fox News host Sean Hannity endorsed U.S. Senate hopeful Bill Hagerty last weekend.

"Send Bill Hagerty to the Senate, he supported Donald Trump in 2016 and has worked closely with him since," Hannity wrote in a social media post. "Bill is the only Trump conservative in the Tennessee Senate race. He has my total support."

The endorsement joins a list of other endorsements from prominent conservative figures, including former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, Sen. Tom Cotton and President Donald Trump.

"I’m honored to have Sean Hannity’s endorsement," Hagerty said. "He’s been a leading conservative voice for decades, and I’m grateful he’s on Team Hagerty.”
