State Rep. Judd Matheny (R-Tullahoma) has traveled more than 8,000 miles across the 6th Congressional District in the first 40 days since he announced his candidacy for the GOP nomination to succeed Rep. Diane Black (R-TN-06) as the district’s representative in the United States House of Representatives, according to his campaign.
“Since his announcement on June 30th, Matheny and his Campaign Team have covered an astounding 8,259 miles in the first 40 days! Judd and his team are just getting started!” the Matheny campaign team said in a statement emailed to The Tennessee Star:
Judd’s campaign team had a successful, first 40 days in fundraising efforts, and have several fundraising events scheduled between September 1 and October 30, 2017, including one with Country Music Group “Trick Pony” as the entertainment, on September 18th at Tims Ford Lake, Holiday Landing Marina – Blue Gill Restaurant! Contact Jennifer Hamblin at 615.504.0244 for ticket information.
You have got to love Judd’s theme – “For Our Tomorrow, Judd Takes Action Today.” So far, he is living up to this anthem.
“No one will out work me or be more dedicated to the citizens of the sixth district,” Matheny said.
In June, Matheny spearheaded the creation of a letter, signed by sixty-five members of the House, that informed the Nashville Metro Council any efforts to pass a sanctuary city ordinance would not be favorably received. Subsequent to the publication of that letter, the sponsors of the sanctuary city ordinance withdrew it from consideration.
Matheny’s travel across the 6th Congressional District since his announcement has been well documented.
On Tuesday, former Tennessee Agriculture Commissioner John Rose became the second announced candidate for the Republican nomination in the 6th Congressional District.
Unlike Matheny, who is an eight term member of the Tennessee House of Representatives, Rose has never been elected to a political office. During his time in the Tennessee House, Matheny has established himself as one of its most effective and conservative members.
