REPUBLICANS MAKE HISTORY IN TENNESSEE

GOP RUNS THE TABLE IN TN, CAPTURES GOVERNORSHIP & INCREASES MAJORITIES IN BOTH CHAMBERS OF GENERAL ASSEMBLY

NASHVILLE, TN - For the first time in modern history, Tennessee will have a Republican governor and majorities in both state legislative bodies simultaneously. Earlier it was announced that Republican Bill Haslam was elected governor of Tennessee and returns are showing that Republicans have built on their current 19-14 majority in the State Senate and razor-thin 50-48-1 majority in the State House. Returns are still coming in, but as of this release, Republicans have made double-digit gains in the State House.

"For the first time in modern history, Republicans are going to lead at every level of government in this state," said Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Chris Devaney. "This is truly a historic day and Republicans are honored that voters have put their trust in our party to lead Tennessee.

"This was 100 percent a team effort," continued Devaney. "I want to thank our Republican Senators and Congressmen as well as the Republican leadership of the State House and Senate Caucuses. These leaders went above and beyond to help elect our candidates and their hard work was critical in our success this year. I also want to thank the thousands of donors, volunteers, and Party leadership members who gave us their support. Clearly we wouldn't be where we are without the critical resources they provided us over the course of this election cycle.

"Lastly, I want to thank all of the Republican candidates who ran this year. Running for office is an extremely difficult task and regardless of the outcome, each one of these candidates should be commended for their dedication and sacrifice over the last months."
