Republican Road to Victory Bus Tour Stops in Newport

Event at Cocke County Courthouse part of statewide effort to reelect conservative leaders

House Republican Caucus Chairman Jeremy Faison (R-Cosby) and State Sen. Steve Southerland (R-Morristown) this week joined with Tennessee House Speaker Cameron Sexton (R-Crossville)Congressman David Kustoff (R-Tennessee), Republican Congressional Candidate Diana Harshbarger, GOP Chairman Scott Golden, and other conservative leaders to visit with voters in Cocke County as part of the statewide Road to Victory bus tour.   

The event was held at the courthouse, and it gave citizens an opportunity to learn more about Tennessee’s remarkable success story over the last 10 years.  

“As we have traveled our state, we have seen great turnouts and tremendous enthusiasm for conservative candidates at every stop — including here in Newport,” said Speaker Sexton. “We believe this will translate into big victories for our republican candidates on election night. With Gov. Lee, Lt. Gov. McNally and House Republican leaders like Jeremy Faison, Tennessee has the right leadership. We need you to continue electing conservatives so we can build upon our many recent achievements and enable more of our citizens to thrive.”  

Under conservative leadership, Tennessee is the lowest debt state, the second best for doing business, and one of the lowest taxed states in the entire nation. Wednesday’s visit was the third stop of the day and the eleventh overall on tour.     

“The left wants us to believe that America was never great and socialized forms of government are the future of this country,” said House Republican Chairman Jeremy Faison. “If you are like the millions of Tennesseans that disagree with that idea, we need your support this election. Individual liberty, personal responsibilty, and our Tennessee values are on the ballot. I believe we are going to send a strong message to those who wish to change our core; America is here to stay and her best days are still ahead.”

“We are continuing to see the enthusiasm build as we enter the last days of this election,” said Sen. Southerland.  “Never has an election been more clearly defined on the issues or more important to the future of this nation.  Tennesseans know that our very democracy is at stake as this election is about two completely different visions of America.   That continues to change the minds of voters to elect Republicans.  We appreciate all of the local support for our Republican candidates and remind voters to get out and cast their vote.”  

 “It was an honor to join Speaker Sexton and Congressman David Kustoff as we traveled through the First Congressional District. I was amazed at the level of support we received during each of our stops. From Blountville to Sevierville, Tennesseans are excited to go to the ballot box and re-elect President Trump and Republicans up and down the ballot. Tennessee is a great place to work, live and raise a family, in large part due to the great Republican leadership in Nashville.”  

The Road to Victory bus tour is an eight-day event that features 37 stops in 35 counties between Oct. 19-Oct. 28. It is designed to encourage citizens to vote and to elect Republican candidates who are currently serving or running to serve their respective communities.
