Nashville, Tenn. (TN Tribune)–Today, the Tennessee Democratic Party is announcing that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is granting the TNDP’s request to fund a new Organizing Director to help register and turn out potential voters across the Volunteer State.
This organizing program will target key legislative races to lay the groundwork to break
the Republican supermajority in the Tennessee Legislature. With this new role,
Tennessee Democrats will be well positioned for early and consistent voter outreach
across the state throughout the primary and general election cycles.
“As a former state party chair, I know just how critical it is to reach out to voters in
every corner of the state to strengthen our party. That’s why I’m thrilled that the
DNC is able to invest in the Tennessee Democratic Party’s organizing and voter
education work on the ground,” DNC Chair Jaime Harrison said. “It’s imperative,
now more than ever, that we elect strong Democratic leaders who will fight for
lower costs, continue to grow the economy, and stand up for Tennessee families.”
“The Tennessee Democratic Party is excited to receive this new investment as we
head into a heated governor’s election this November and continue to defend our
Democratic seats,” TNDP Chair Hendrell Remus said. “The TNDP is grateful to
the DNC for their support in funding a robust organizing program as Tennessee
Democrats continue fighting for an economy that puts working people first and
defending our state from Republicans’ ultra-MAGA agenda.”
This grant is part of the DNC’s Red State Fund, which was established last year
under the leadership of DNC Chair Jaime Harrison to put Republicans on defense
and build tailored programs in traditionally Republican states.
