TNDP CHAIR STATEMENT ON THE RGA’S DISHONEST ATTACK ON MAYOR DEAN

Nashville, Tenn. (April 25, 2017) – Mary Mancini, chair of the Tennessee Democratic Party, released the following statement the Republican Governor’s Association dishonest attack on Mayor Karl Dean:”

“Because the record of Republican Governors is abysmal, it is no surprise the Republican Governor’s Association has to resort to dishonest attacks with edited videos on Democratic candidates. Republican Governors are in charge of 9 of 10 states with the highest rates of uninsured Americans, 8 of the 10 states with the highest unemployment rates, 8 of 10 states with the lowest median household income and 7 of 10 states that are the most dependent on the federal government tax dollar to operate. Tennessee is in the top ten in every single one of those categories. Tennesseans should expect a plenty more of these dishonest attacks because Republicans have no accomplishments to run on.”
