July 24, 2019 (NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — Tennessee Democratic Party Chair Mary Mancini released the following statement regarding the nomination of Rep. Cameron Sexton to be the next Tennessee House Speaker:

“Cameron Sexton didn’t stand up when Glen Casada was bribing his colleagues or when his staffers were caught fabricating an email to have an activist thrown in jail — because Cameron Sexton is in Casada’s pocket. He stood by Casada’s side and supported him for 7 months while corruption and scandals consumed the state house.

“If the people of Tennessee expect anything to be done about vouchers, rural hospital closures, the opioid crisis, or crumbling infrastructure, they should know right now that under Rep. Sexton’s leadership, nothing will get done and the Republican culture of corruption will continue.”
