“Tennessee lost a great Democrat with the passing of our dear friend Dixie Taylor-Huff yesterday. Over my many years in Tennessee Democratic politics, Dixie was a key advisor, powerful mentor and valued friend. A powerful fundraiser, Dixie was a ‘go-to’ leader for candidates all across this state. And she will be remembered for her powerful entrepreneurial flair as she blazed new trails as a women in the health care profession building a premier Tennessee company. We have lost a good one and our thoughts and prayers go out to her family in this time of loss and grieving.”

We will be sure to keep you updated on how you can pay your respects to this great woman and Tennessee Democrat.
