NRA Rates Elam A+, Endorses for Re-Election

Press release from State Rep. Linda Elam, R-Mt Juliet; July 19, 2012: 

(Mt Juliet, TN) – State Representative Linda Elam announced today that the NRA has endorsed her candidacy for re-election to the Tennessee State House in House District 57. This endorsement is accompanied by an A+ rating from the NRA, the highest rating possible.

Elam (R, Mt. Juliet) is a strong conservative who dedicates herself to defending the Second Amendment rights of all Tennesseans. Her voting record proves her support of these rights, which has resulted in this NRA endorsement.

“I am very pleased to have the endorsement of the NRA. I believe it is my duty to defend our sacred Second Amendment rights whenever they are threatened. I have had a carry permit myself for many years. I will continue to work so that all Tennesseans retain the right to own, keep and use guns – whether for hunting, self-protection, target practice, or defense of our State and Country,” Elam said.

Elam has previously received the endorsement of the Tennessee Right to Life, has a 100% voting record with the Eagle Forum, and has received endorsements from 58 of her state house colleagues.

114 Current, Former Elected Officials Support Haslam

Press Release from Bill Haslam for Governor; July 28, 2010:

Coalition Supports Mayor for His Leadership, Experience at the Local Level, Temperament

NASHVILLE – One hundred and fourteen elected and former elected officials from across the state endorsed today Republican gubernatorial candidate and Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam’s bid for governor, saying he has the right experience, the right plan and the right temperament to lead the state as its next governor.

Haslam is currently conducting on his statewide Early Voting Tour, and he knows the right way to develop a plan is take your ideas to the people and include them in the process. His blueprint for making Tennessee the No. 1 state in the Southeast for high quality jobs – released last month – was developed from Haslam’s creative solutions, taking them to the small business owners, parents, educators and various professionals and listening, learning and receiving their input.

“Bill Haslam knows how government works at the local level, and he’s well-versed in our challenges and opportunities,” said Shelby County Commissioner Mike Carpenter. “He believes that the most functional government is close to home and understands that the state can be more of a burden than a help in some situations.”

“I’m supporting Bill Haslam because of his record of management in Knoxville and his conservative fiscal leadership that has helped Knoxville weather these difficult times,” Sevier County Trustee Jettie Clabo said. “The state faces some critical challenges in the next few years, and I believe he has the right experience to lead us through tough times because he’s done it before.”

“Above all else, Bill Haslam has the right temperament to lead us,” Hamblen County Mayor David Purkey said. “He’s shown that he can make the difficult and right decisions that will ultimately lead to a position of strength even though they hurt at the time. I trust Bill Haslam to work with local leaders as he directs our state through the challenging times ahead.”

The Elected Officials Coalition is just one of many coalitions that have backed Haslam’s bid, including: farmers, veterans, young professionals, students and business leaders.

“I’m grateful for the support of so many men and women around the state who have been chosen to represent Tennesseans at various levels of government,” Haslam said. “With less than 10 days before Aug. 5, their support will be critical as we work to get out the vote.”

Firearms, Sportsmen Community ?Backs Wamp for Guv

Press Release from Zach Wamp for Governor; July 27, 2010:

NASHVILLE – On the heels of a major endorsement from Tennessee gun rights advocate Ronnie Barrett, CEO of Barrett Firearms, Republican Zach Wamp announced today additional support from grassroots leaders in the sportsmen and 2nd Amendment community in his bid for governor.

More than 30 hunting, fishing and firearms advocates representing Tennessee’s three grand divisions have publicly endorsed Zach’s bid for governor, highlighting his lifelong commitment to the 2nd Amendment and the state’s hunting and fishing heritage while acknowledging the need for a strong conservative governor who will actively protect the sporting rights cherished by so many Tennesseans.

“I have enjoyed a tremendous amount of support from gun owners and sportsmen throughout this campaign,” said Wamp. “We are leading in the rural areas of the state and much of that support comes from those who are familiar with my strong commitment to hunting, fishing and the 2nd Amendment. As governor, I will protect and nurture these rights from day one.”

As a member of Congress, Zach has proudly and consistently supported Tennesseans’ right to own and bear arms while protecting the important traditions of hunting and fishing. Zach opposed the United Nations’ taxation on firearms, protected Tennesseans’ rights to defend themselves and supports an amendment to the state constitution that guarantees Tennesseans’ right to hunt and fish.

“I agree wholeheartedly with what Ronnie Barrett said two weeks ago. Zach Wamp has stood strong with us to protect and defend our 2nd Amendment rights,” said David Waldrip, a longtime 2nd Amendment grassroots activist and resident of Shelby County. ??“We must make sure that our next Governor understands, supports and defends our rights under the constitution. Zach Wamp is that man, and I encourage my fellow gun owners, carry permit holders and sportsmen to follow Ronnie Barrett’s example and join me in supporting Zach Wamp for governor.”

Immigration Group Founder Endorses Wamp

Press Release from the Minuteman Project; July 26, 2010:

Only Candidate with Proven Record on Ending Illegal Immigration, Enforcing Border Security

Aliso Viejo, CA – Minuteman Project Founder and President Jim Gilchrist, the nation’s leading grassroots activist on the issue of immigration reform and border security, announced today that he is endorsing Congressman Zach Wamp in his bid for Governor of Tennessee.  Gilchrist cited Wamp’s strong record on securing our borders, denying illegals any form of amnesty, and cracking down on taxpayer funded benefits that attract illegals to the United States.  Polls show that immigration reform and border security remains one of the top issues facing voters of the state of Tennessee in the upcoming August 5 Republican Primary.

Gilchrist stated, “Instead of politicians who like to talk about illegal immigration without actually having a record of acting to end this problem, America needs real leaders like Zach Wamp to implement Arizona style laws in states like Tennessee.   With his strong track record of calling for the Federal Government to enforce our laws and secure our borders, Zach Wamp is the only candidate who truly has a committed stand on the issues of immigration reform and border security.  We need Zach Wamp as Governor of Tennessee to end the chaos of illegal immigration.”

Regarding the August 5 Republican Primary Gilchrist said, “For too long law abiding Americans have grown tired of watching the political establishment lack the will to enforce our nation’s laws when it comes to border security and immigration policy.  For over 15 years Zach Wamp has earned the strongest record of any member of the Tennessee Congressional Delegation on this issue and has proven he will fight that same status quo establishment.  Tennessee needs someone in Nashville that will fight on behalf of taxpayers to end the influx of illegal aliens in America and that is why I wholeheartedly endorse Zach Wamp for Governor of Tennessee.”

Jim Gilchrist founded the multi-ethnic Minuteman Project on Oct. 1, 2004, after years of frustrated efforts trying to get a neglectful U.S. government to simply enforce existing immigration laws.  Called “the world’s largest neighborhood watch”, their volunteer members aid efforts of the US Border Patrol by watching for illegal activity along the US-Mexican border.

Jim Gilchrist is the founder and President of the Minuteman Project, a multi-ethnic grassroots organization dedicated to border security and immigration reform.  For more information see

20 Tea Parties Endorse Ramsey For Governor

Press Release from Ron Ramsey for Governor; July 6, 2010:

TENNESSEE (July 5, 2010) – An association of twenty Tea Party organizations representing every corner of the state announced today that they are endorsing Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey for the next Governor of Tennessee.

These groups arrived at their decisions following a thorough, three-month vetting process, which included research into the candidates’ backgrounds and voting records, completion of vetting questionnaires, and culminated in a vetting forum near Nashville on June 27th. Republican, Democratic, and Independent candidates were considered for their knowledge, commitment, and record on the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, fiscal responsibility, the role of the State and Federal Governments, and protection of the rights of individuals.

Eric Stamper of Sumner United for Responsible Government coordinated the vetting and endorsement process and said, “We believe the comprehensive and cautious nature of our vetting combined with the endorsement of almost every Tea Party group capable of endorsing will give voters the security to know that Ron Ramsey is the candidate who is most committed to limited and responsible government and has the best record to prove it. Despite what other candidates may claim, this endorsement of Ron Ramsey by twenty of Tennessee’s Tea Party groups and the previous endorsement of approximately fifty individual founders and leaders of liberty groups should confirm once and for all that Ron Ramsey is the ‘tea party candidate’ and enjoys nearly unanimous support among the tea parties.”

Lt. Governor Ramsey said, “I am thrilled to be endorsed by the Tea Party movement in Tennessee. This movement represents the values of Tennesseans who share my love for the state and my desire to focus on controlling our budget, limiting the scope of government and encouraging new business through free markets. My commitment to these principles as Lt. Governor has been clear and when I am elected Governor, I will ensure our state sovereignty and the liberty of the people of Tennessee.”

The groups joining in the endorsement represent approximately 25 counties and more than 20,000 Tea Party participants and include:

Bedford County Tea Party

Big South Fork Tea Party

Cumberland County Tea Party

Fayette County Tea Party

Franklin County Tea Party

Gibson County Patriots

Humphreys County Tea Party

Knoxville Tea Party

Lincoln County Tea Party

The Members of Cross County Patriots

The Memphis TEA Party

Monteagle Tea Party

Moore County Tea Party

Roane County Tea Party

Robertson County Tea Party

Sumner United for Responsible Government

Tea Party Cooperative

Tennessee Tea Party

Tipton County Tea Party

Upper Cumberland Freedom Rally

Teresa Stang, a member of the leadership team for Cross County Patriots, said, “When the Tea Party Movement started in 2009, the emphasis was on an out of control Federal Government, but State Governments do not have to cave in to the Federal Government, courtesy of the 10th Amendment. We view the role of Governor as being highly critical and I personally was excited at the unbiased vetting process that took place among liberty-minded groups statewide. We need a principled governor who is willing to take a stand. Ron Ramsey is the overwhelming choice of the members of Cross County Patriots in Loudon and West Knox Counties because we believe he is such a man.”

Mark A. Skoda, founder of The Memphis TEA Party, stated, “We appreciate that all of the candidates are now paying verbal respect to the Constitution and individual liberty, but the other candidates’ records and responses cause us concern. Bill Haslam has been a member of Mayor Bloomberg’s anti-gun coalition, opposes using the same anti-immigration policies as Arizona, has proposed several areas of government growth, and is difficult to nail down on any particular issue. Zach Wamp voted for TARP, Cash For Clunkers, No Child Left Behind, Real ID national identification system, and is now in his eighth term in Congress after pledging no more than six terms.”

Skoda further commented, “Ron Ramsey, by contrast, tells you exactly where he stands on every issue. He has vastly expanded the ability of Tennesseans to get gun carry permits, stands ready to implement the Arizona illegal immigration law, has sponsored legislation to reduce estate taxes and the Hall tax, and co-sponsored legislation to repeal the constitutionally-questionable Federal healthcare bill. He has received numerous awards for his pro-business and pro-life legislation.“

About the association of Tea Party groups:

The tea party movement is a grassroots phenomenon made up of everyday citizens with little or no previous political experience. These citizens have been moved to action by a sudden acceleration in government spending, government intrusion, and disregard for the Constitution and rule of law. Tennessee has an active Tea Party movement, with more than forty known entities identifying as Tea Parties, promoting adherence to the principles of liberty and limited government embodied by the American Constitution and Declaration of Independence. Each tea party group involved in this endorsement is completely autonomous and decided to endorse according to its own rules and procedures.

Haslam Announces Veteran Support

Press Release from Bill Haslam for Governor; July 2, 2010:

Veterans From Across State Back Mayor Haslam in Bid for Governor

KNOXVILLE – Military service veterans from across Tennessee announced their support for Knoxville Mayor and Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Haslam before the July 4th weekend and two weeks from the start of early voting on July 16.

The Veterans Coalition represents a group of individuals who served their country and recognize in Mayor Haslam the good heart, commitment and passion for public service that they believe is needed of Tennessee’s next governor.

Accompanied with recent high profile endorsements, record-breaking fundraising, campaign organization in all 95 counties and two polls indicating Haslam is the strongest Republican in the GOP field, the announcement is another indication Haslam has the momentum with early voting beginning soon, and the coalition is yet another group to show support for Haslam, joining business leaders, young professionals, Tea Party activists and students.

“Bill Haslam is a man who comes from a family who served our great country; in fact his grandfather was a member of the Greatest Generation. Bill’s dad also faithfully served in our army,” said retired Col. Bill Felton of Knoxville. “Bill grew up with it being a part of his everyday life, and he knows what integrity and honest dealing is all about. He’s the man for the moment.”

“Mayor Haslam shares my values and my love of country, Tennessee and service, and he has the right experience, knowledge and temperament to lead this state as it faces enormous challenges,” said retired Gen. Hugh Smith of Clarksville. “I know he’ll make a great governor because his record shows he knows how to manage budgets and make a community strong.”

“As a West Tennessean, I know we need a man as governor who understands that each region has different challenges and opportunities, and Bill Haslam is that man,” said retired Lt. Col. Ray Tanner of Madison. “He has the sense of duty and heart for service that every public official should have.”

“I truly appreciate the support of this group for my campaign,” Haslam said. “These individuals know service and sacrifice, and to have their support in my bid to be governor and make Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for jobs is a tremendous honor.”

Mayor Haslam is the two-term Republican Mayor of Knoxville, reelected in 2007 with 87 percent of the vote. A hardworking, conservative public servant, Haslam led Knoxville to become one of the top ten metropolitan areas for business and expansion, while reducing the city’s debt, tripling the rainy day fund, and bringing property taxes to the lowest rate in 50 years. An executive leader with a proven record of success, he helped grow his family’s small business from 800 employees into one of Tennessee’s largest companies with 14,000 employees.
