President, Tennessee FRW
County primary elections are over. Now, going forward, we can wholeheartedly support our Republican county primary winners and work hard for their victory on August 2.
You might have noticed the "REPUBLICANS WHO STAY HOME ELECT DEMOCRATS" pins being worn by Republican women across Tennessee to promote unity and inspire more Republicans to get out and vote on August 2. Republicans desperately need a bigger turnout in our counties and in our state. This message worked in 2016 as the National Federation of Republican Women promoted it in 11 targeted states. Donald Trump won in most of those states. Now, this message needs to work in Tennessee. We are selling these pins for $3 each, or 2 for $5.
All TFRW members are excited about the Tennessee Republican Party's Victory 2018 plans. RNC is putting $1 million into Tennessee with a State Director, a Deputy State Director, five Field Directors, and seventeen Field Operators. I think that means seventeen field offices to staff. I encourage all federated members to sign up to volunteer at your closest field office. Here is the link for volunteer signup: Tennessee Victory 2018 Volunteer Sign-Up
Some Tennessee Victory 2018 field staff start Monday and will begin reaching out, introducing themselves to county Republican party Chairmen and county Republican women's club Presidents. Field office locations will be announced soon.
Remember, the voter registration deadline is July 3. Tennesseans can register to vote or update their voter registration information online at www.govotetn.com. Early Voting begins on July 13 and runs through July 28.
And be sure to count your campaign volunteer hours!!!!!
