August 10, 2018 - Nashville, Tenn. - Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) has ended his silence on his harmful comments directed at Marsha Blackburn, but still refuses to apologize. Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Scott Golden released the following statement in response to Cohen's non-apology:
"At first, Steve Cohen ignored the Huffington Post’s requests for comment regarding his hateful comments. Then, he finally mustered the courage to speak (only after the story had been published), and he categorically refused to apologize. In fact, he doubled down on the name-calling. Such behavior from a sitting Congressman is completely out of line, and if the parties were reversed there would be no shortage of calls from the liberal left and the media for his resignation. Representative Cohen is showing us what Tennessee Democrats actually think."
