NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Monday, December 1, 2014) — Nashville Democrats have thrown their support behind Mary Mancini in the race for chair of the Tennessee Democratic Party.
The Davidson County Democratic Executive Committee, the governing body for Democrats in Nashville, endorsed Mancini in its November meeting.
State Democratic Party leaders will choose a new chair in January.
Gary Bynum, chairman of the Davidson County Democratic Party, said Mancini’s leadership and organizing experience on core Democratic Party values and progressive causes, from rebuilding the middle class to promoting equality, makes her the clear choice to lead Tennessee Democrats.
“Having worked alongside Mary for years, we know that Mary Mancini is exactly the kind of leader that Tennessee Democrats need: she is battle-tested and doesn’t just offer platitudes and talking points, she is ready to hit the ground running on day one to start laying the groundwork to win races across the state in both rural and urban areas,” Bynum said. “Mary Mancini has consistently demonstrated an ability to build progressive coalitions by leading the fight for equality and fairness for Tennesseans, and we know she will be a tireless advocate for all Democrats throughout Tennessee.”
