Press release from the Campaign for Gordon Ball for U.S. Senate; July 24, 2014:
Wednesday, the Gordon Ball for US Senate Campaign launched its second statewide commercial called “Working for Tennessee.” The commercial will air daily in media markets throughout Tennessee. Ball supports raising the minimum wage because no one working full-time should be living in poverty.
“The problem with Lamar Alexander is the only job he is fighting for is his own. He’s so busy trying to win the conservative of the year award that he stopped fighting to keep Tennessee hospitals open, and he’s no longer working or fighting to make sure companies and jobs stay in Tennessee. We need leadership concerned with the next generation, not the next election.”
