2008 Campaign for the Tennessee General Assembly

Tennessee Eagle Forum sent a questionnaire to each candidate and each sitting legislator who had an opponent. Answers are recorded on a chart with the percentage of the time the candidate agrees with Eagle Forum's position noted on the far right of the page.

If a candidate you are interested in did not return their questionnaire, you will want to call him or her ask why! For a list of all the candidates, you can go to
http://www.state.tn.us/tref/cand/cand_list.htm for their addresses, then you can get their phone number from the phone book or from information. A lot of work has gone into this and I hope you will use it and encourage others to use it to assist in voting choices.

In addition to the questionnaire, candidates are given the opportunity to sign a pledge that they WILL NOT take any campaign contributions from gambling interests. If a candidate did not answer our questionnaire or sign the pledge, you will want to contact them for their position on issues of interest. If you have any questions please contact me at
bobbie@tneagleforum.org or call 615.360.8810. We hope you will let others know about this resource.
