Another Obstructionist Confirmation Fight

Gina Haspel’s nomination to become the director of the CIA is unsurprisingly being obstructed by Senate Democrats, despite the fact that she is the best candidate for that position. Not only has she been working for the CIA since 1985, but she has wide-spread support from the national security community - not to mention the George H.W. Bush Award for Excellence in Counterterrorism. Confirmations like Gina Haspel's highlight the reason why Tennesseans cannot send another Democrat to the Senate. We need a Senator what will work with President Trump to get things done, not obstruct and resist - the calling cards of the Democratic Party. 

2018 Statesmen's Dinner

We're almost three weeks away from this years Statesmen's Dinner. If you haven't already, make sure to get your ticket to the event no Republican in Tennessee will want to miss. Also, check our video from Dinner Chairman Congressman Chuck Fleischmann. Join us in Nashville on June 8th as #APartyUnited.



  • After the county primary elections, we have 761 Republican nominees running across the state in local races.
  • The Tennessee Governor Debate Series for Republican candidates will continue on June 20 at 8 ET/7 CT in Nashville and then a third time on July 20 at 8 ET/7 CT in Knoxville. 
  • It should be mentioned that Democratic Candidates Karl Dean and Craig Fitzhugh are scared to debate each other and have not agreed to any public Democratic debates. #AfraidToDebate
