Chalks endorsement of Blackburn up to a ‘business decision’
Clarksville, TN – Gannett’s Nashville paper, the Tennessean, has endorsed the incumbent rather than retired Iraqi War veteran Dan Cramer, in the race for Tennessee’s 7th congressional district. Cramer expressed amusement at the paper’s choice but said he understands how supporting the presumed “safe bet” is a better business decision.
“I am always grateful and honored by any endorsement,” Cramer said, “But one of the realities of politics is that not everyone will agree with you 100% of the time. In the case of the Tennessean’s choice, I can see how their financial interests are better served by endorsing a presumed strong incumbent, but I think there are some interesting inconsistencies in their reasoning.
Recognized for Impacting the Quality of Life of Service Members and their Families
Nashville, TN – Tennessee State Representative Curtis Johnson (R-Clarksville) was recognized recently by the United States Department of Defense for his “leadership on public policy changes positively impacting the quality of life of Service members and their families.”
The award of appreciation comes after Rep. Johnson successfully passed several bills to aid military service members and their families, including House Bill 1372 which was approved this year. That new law would allow certain out-of-state veterans to pay in-state tuition and fees at state colleges and universities.
