“Tim is coming to Nashville to help us face the challenges before us. He’s a problem solver, and he’s committed to working to continue balancing the state budget without new taxes, to expanding access to education so Tennesseans of all ages can get the skills they need to be successful in today’s economy, and to providing the high quality and affordable health care that everyone needs and deserves.

He understands the need to provide a quality education for our children and quality and affordable health care for everyone. He’ll stand tall or the values we share. Democrats are united and proud that Tim is now our nominee for the Tennessee Senate.”
