NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Scott Golden released the following statement on the shameful behavior of Tennessee State Capitol protestors:
"There is no room in our civil discourse for behavior like that demonstrated by protesters this morning at the Tennessee State Capitol. Throwing anything at, or onto, legislators and verbally disturbing committee hearings cannot be tolerated. These protestors have shown they are solely interested in causing a scene and disrupting the legislative process. Tennessee Democrats should denounce these protestors and their increasingly shameful behavior. It’s time for them to join Republicans in fighting for peaceful governing at the Capitol."
