Tennessee, I am Running for Governor
My experience as Mayor of Knoxville, as a civic leader, a successful businessman, and a committed family man will guide me as Governor. I will work to retain and create good jobs, improve public education, protect the second amendment, attract new industry, defend life, provide quality healthcare and obtain affordable energy and clean water. By standing on conservative principles, we can do these things without a state income tax.
