Campaign for 20th District Senate Seat Moves Forward
The Friends of Rob Mortensen are announcing a fundraising event for Rob
Mortensen, Republican candidate for State Senate in Tennessee's 20th
District. The event will be hosted by Mark and Sissy Simmons at their
home on Tuesday, June 26. Special guests for the evening include State
Senator Bill Ketron (Chairman, State Senate Republican Caucus) and State
Senator Randy McNally (Chairman, State Senate Finance Committee).
Co-Hosts for the event include Dr. Jim Loden
(Mortensen's campaign treasurer), State Representative Mark White, Metro
Councilman Josh Stites, Mayor Austin McMullen, Mayor Tommy Alsup and
"I am deeply grateful that so many people are
supporting this event," said Mortensen. "This seat is an excellent
opportunity for Republicans to grow their majority in Tennessee's
Legislature." Mortensen went on to say that he believed he will win the
seat. "Tennessee can be an example to the rest of the country as a place
where the economy and jobs are at the forefront of our legislation. I
want to represent the people of the 20th District so we can continue to
move Tennessee forward in the best direction."
The 20th District seat was held by State Senator
Joe Haynes (D) who recently announced his retirement. Mortensen is
running with two other candidates in the Republican primary for this
State Senate seat. Early Voting begins Friday, July 13 at locations
throughout Davidson County.
