Tennessee (February 16, 2018) –  Following the announcement from the Special Counsel of indictments issued against Russian nationals for meddling in the US election, Mary Mancini, Chair of the Tennessee Democratic Party released the following statement:

“Tennesseans need to be able to depend on the integrity of our elections. The indictments from the special counsel are extremely troubling and re-confirm that a foreign government actively sought to influence the 2016 election. What is most concerning though, is Tennessee Republicans lack of interest in doing anything whatsoever to protect future elections. Their inaction leaves our state vulnerable to future attacks and is not acceptable.”
