The Grand Old Publication is the TNGOP's bi-monthly newsletter to keep you up to date with Republican news and events across the Volunteer State.


Bredesen and Dean are Silent on Hillary

After her 2016 defeat, Hillary Clinton just won't go away. Once again, she is in the news name-calling those that didn't vote for her, this time calling the people of Tennessee "backwards." As pathetic as her attempt to remain relevant is, more problematic has been the silence coming from Phil Bredesen and Karl Dean. Neither of them have taken the time to defend Tennesseans and stand up to Clinton's hateful characterization. If Bredesen and Dean won't defend our state against attacks from their own Party, they don't deserve to represent Tennessee.


3 and 0

Since President Trump's election, Tennessee has had three special elections. Despite the Democrats pulling out all the stops, we won all three! That is thanks to the strength of our members, the hard work of volunteers and the success of Republican leadership in our state.
