NASHVILLE, TN – The Tennessee Republican Party today unveiled a billboard in Hamblen County that informs District 10 voters that Democrat State House candidate Larry Mullins isn’t as far removed from liberal Washington politicians as he claims to be. In addition, the state party is also unveiling a website highlighting the billboard and giving voters the opportunity to sign-up to help stop the liberal agenda of Larry Mullins and President Obama.

“It’s no surprise that Larry Mullins repeatedly tries to distance himself from Washington politicians, but the fact is he connected himself to Washington liberals by actively supporting Hillary Clinton and then Barack Obama as a delegate to the 2008 Democratic National Convention,” said Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Chris Devaney. “We felt it necessary to make sure Hamblen County voters know exactly who Larry Mullins is and that’s a Democrat who supports liberal politicians advocating policies such as government-run health care, abortion rights, cap-and-trade, gun control, and card check. The people of Hamblen County want a representative who will fight for Tennessee when Washington liberals try to impose their reckless agenda on our state, not someone who will go out of their way to make sure those liberals get elected.

“While Larry may be a nice fellow, he is not a conservative and we’re confident that when voters find out about his support for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, they are going to reject his candidacy. The bottom line is he has been an activist Democrat who will not be able to effectively work with our Republican governor to improve the economy in Hamblen County.”
