Tennessee Democratic Caucus:

NASHVILLE – Senate Democratic leaders congratulated Gloria Johnson Wednesday on her nomination as the Democratic candidate for the State Senate District 6 special election.

“Gloria has a commitment to Knoxville, a call to teach special needs children, and a strong desire to serve her community,” said Caucus Chairman Lowe Finney. “We are excited about Gloria’s candidacy and look forward to seeing great things from her over the next two months and beyond.”

Johnson has lived in Knoxville for most of her life, having taught special needs children in the 6th District for more than 20 years. A University of Tennessee graduate, Johnson has been working with local schools and businesses to make higher education a greater priority in order to train Tennessee workers for the global economy.

“Our educators know what it takes to put people on the track to getting a good education and an even better job,” said Senate Democratic Leader Jim Kyle. “Gloria Johnson will provide the kind of leadership and focus that our legislature needs and the people of Tennessee deserve.”

Early voting for the District 6 general election begins in late October, and Election Day is November 8.
