State Senate hopeful Shane Reeves announced Friday he will air a new, 30-second TV advertisement to promote his campaign to replace former State Senator Jim Tracy (R-Shelbyville), who resigned in November to join the Trump Administration at the USDA.
In a statement, the Reeves campaign said the commercial will air during the NCAA bowl games, plus the playoff and national championship games next week. The ad buy also includes airtime beginning next week on popular cable channels, such as FOX News, HGTV, and others.
Reeves is well-known in Middle Tennessee as the former owner of the Reeves-Sain Family of Medical Services. He sold his majority interest in the company to Fred’s in 2015, and currently owns TwelveStone Health Partners where he employs 125 people in Rutherford County.
Reeves and former state Representative Joe Carr are both vying for the Republican nomination for the 14th State Senate District seat, which will be decided in a special primary election January 25.
The general election will be held in March.
