TNGOP Statement on Results on SD 17 Special Election

Nashville, Tenn. – December 19, 2017 – Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Scott Golden released the following statement on the results of the special election for Senate District 17: 

"Congratulations to Mark Pody on his victory and new role as a State Senator. He has served as a conservative leader in the State House for seven years, and I look forward to his continued leadership in the State Senate.

"Voters see the results of Republican governing – record low unemployment, nation-leading educational opportunities, balanced budgets, and economic growth - and they see through Democrats’ attempts to paint an unrealistic, dismal picture for Tennessee. This is why tonight is yet another special election victory for Tennessee Republicans in 2017."

 

Background:

- Kevin Vaughn won the special election for House District 95 in June, 2017.
