“This election is very important to our state and nation! Tennesseans have stood strong by electing conservative leaders, and now, our great state is the least debt state, second best state for businesses and one of the lowest taxed in America,” said House Speaker Cameron Sexton (R-Crossville). “Our Road to Victory Bus Tour is a tremendous opportunity to share how Tennesseans are better off with conservative, Republican leadership, rather than liberal tax and spend policies. We hope members from our communities come out to meet our candidates and leaders.”
“Our Republican Majority’s success story is second to none,” said Lt. Gov. Randy McNally (R-Oak Ridge). “Republicans across the state are energized by our record of conservative governance and our strong unified conservative message. Bringing that message to these 35 counties will energize our voters and encourage all Tennesseans to join our cause. I would like to thank Speaker Sexton for organizing this outstanding effort. I have known and worked with him for many years. I appreciate him highlighting the great work Governor Lee and our House and Senate leaders are doing for our state and our people.”
“Thanks to strong, conservative Republican leadership in our state, we’ve been able to deliver good jobs, good schools, and safe neighborhoods for the people of Tennessee,” said Governor Bill Lee. “The Road to Victory Bus Tour will highlight the many Republican champions across our state at all levels of government who uphold our Tennessee values and keep our taxes low. I encourage all Tennesseans to join me in supporting these conservative Republican leaders up and down the ballot so our state can continue to lead the nation.”
“We need Tennesseans to head to the polls and vote Republican, so our state can remain a national model for all to follow,” said Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Scott Golden. “This tour is a great way for these communities to learn more about the men and women who are fighting to uphold the conservative values that matter most to our citizens.”
