There is a movement sweeping across Tennessee!
It’s time for a change in Nashville.
While many worried about the ramifications of standing up for life, I carried and fought to pass SJR 127 which became Amendment 1 to the Tennessee Constitution on abortion.
As your Governor, I will make sure that Tennessee focuses on protecting children before they are born and then providing them a safe and secure environment while they grow and thrive.
We are going to make Tennessee safe. Terrorism is a threat right here at home, so I intend to make safety and security a centerpiece of my campaign.
Gubernatorial candidate and Tennessee State Senator Mae Beavers released the following remarks after winning the straw poll at Saturday’s gubernatorial candidates forum hosted by Rural Tennessee Speaks:
“Our grassroots focus is already bearing fruit across the state, and my message of returning the Republican party to governing by principle is resonating because of my record. I'm the only candidate who's been fighting the establishment for over 20 years and effectively advancing conservative policies in Nashville. The bottom line is that conservatives can't be bought by the moderate millionaires, and there’s more than enough of us to win statewide for the first time in Tennessee’s history.”
Beavers won 66 votes, Lee came in second place with 62, and the other candidates tallied 19 combined.
