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. 


New Business To TN 

So far, 2019 has been a good year for business in Tennessee. Chief Executive Magazine recently named Tennessee the No. 3 state for business in America, and with so many companies recognizing what our state has to offer, thousands of new jobs have been created and millions of dollars have already been invested during the first few months of this year. Titan Medical Manufacturing LLCMcNeilus Steel, Amazon and Volkswagen are just a few of the companies that have already announced new business or expansion in Tennessee. We are looking forward to seeing what other businesses choose Tennessee as their home throughout the rest of this year under the leadership of Gov. Lee. 

TN Continues To Rank Up 

Just this week, Tennessee was ranked by U.S. News at the top state for fiscal stability. "The fiscal stability of a state’s government is vital to ensuring the success of government-sponsored programs and projects and the quality of life of the state’s residents," says the site. 

Democrats Lining Up To Battle Trump

Just when we thought there couldn't be anymore Democratic candidates up for the nomination to go head to head with Trump, enter Montana Gov. Steve Bullock. He announced just yesterday morning his candidacy. The progressive governor now joins a crowded field of 22 candidates, all seeking the chance to challenge President Trump in 2020. What's even crazier, Bullock might not even be the last candidate. Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is still considering a 2020 run as well. The DNC's primary debates are capped at 20, so it will be interesting to see who does and doesn't make the cut.
