Bill Haslam, Republican Candidate for Tennessee Governor

Over the next few weeks, we are going to be introducing you to the men and women who are running as Republicans for our Govenors across America. This may be the best group of Republicans who have ever run for Governor because they have plans for how to grow the economy in their states. When they ask for your vote, they are ready to lead immediately upon taking office.

Today we want to introduce you to the Mayor of Knoxville, Bill Haslam, who was nominated last week by the voters in Tennessee to be their candidate for Governor of Tennessee.

One remarkable item jumps out when you look at Bill's website -- the endorsements page contains endorsements from the people of Tennessee not some of the power brokers of the Republican Party. Here are a few examples:

After hearing Bill speak at TML's annual meeting recently, I am convinced that he has the executive and public service skills necessary to best represent all of the people in the State of Tennessee. Straight forward, no catch phrases, just solid experience and a realistic vision that will best represent the majority of Tennesseans. As the mayor of the Town of Signal Mountain, I believe that Bill's experience as Knoxville's mayor, will translate into real benefits for municipalities in all of Tennessee's 95 counties.



Bill is EXACTLY what I'm looking for in someone to represent me, my family, and this state. His "five reasons to elect [him] governor" flier I received recently in the mail resonates with my views 100%. This man is a true conservative in all areas: fiscally, socially, and ethically. Too many times in political cycles, we're asked to vote for the "lesser of two evils." It's going to be nice being able to vote FOR someone this time around, rather than just "against" someone worse. Good luck, Bill! We're 100% behind you!

I currently support him because of the Firearm Freedoms Act controversy. He supports the Second Amendment, and anyone with access to the internet knows that a gun owning populace reduces crime. Just look at Kennesaw, GA--every able head of household must own a firearm, crime has decreased significantly since the law was enacted. Keep fighting the good fight, Bill!

As a lifelong Democrat, voting for Bill weighed on me. But there is one thing that is undeniable; Bill Haslam is a champion of Tennessee. He wears many hats: child of God, business man, volunteer, advocate for the region, community leader, positive role model and a Vol fan...what's not to like? I have never voted Republican, for social, fiscal and environmental reasons, but I feel that since Bill committed his life to Tennessee before this race, we should do our part to recognize him for that and vote for him as a thank you. I know he will be 100% committed to the success of our state. He is from the East Tennessee, and I can not see him making decisions that will adversely affect this beautiful and environmentally sensitive area or state. We are in such bad financial shape because of the recession, who better than a successful business man to lead us out? Bill came from a very successful family, and could have taken the 'easy way out', but instead he has worked hard in business and our community and I have to respect that. p.s I still want a "Democrats for Haslam" sticker.

There are pages of endorsements like this for the Conservative Knoxville Mayor, Bill Haslam. It doesn't get any better than that when the people you seek to represent as Governor are the ones giving the endorsements.
