March 14, 2018 (NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — Following yesterday’s special election for State Senate, Chair of the Tennessee Democratic Party Mary Mancini released the following statement:

“Tennessee Republicans pulled out all the stops and spent well over half a million dollars to hold a senate district they won in 2016 by 48 points. This is a marathon, not a sprint — and we’re proud of Gayle Jordan, her campaign, and all the wonderful volunteers who worked tirelessly making phone calls, knocking on doors, and writing post cards to support Gayle. We’re also inspired by a candidate who persevered even though she endured relentless, ugly, personal attacks from a Republican candidate who had no interest in discussing his stance on the issues that matter to Tennessee families.”
