Republican Governors from across the country traveled to the Volunteer State this week for a series of multi-day meetings and presentations.
The Nashville event has allowed hundreds of people to attend the conference, as this is the first major event the organization has held since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The meeting of the group empowers members of the Republican Governors Association (RGA) to attend meetings and facilitate discussion on various policies in each state.
“Thrilled to be in Nashville for @The_RGA Spring Meeting to discuss smart policy, economic growth, and the future of our nation with fellow Republican governors,” Arizona Governor and Chair of the RGA Doug Ducey shared in a tweet. Included in the tweet was a picture of Ducey and Tennessee Governor Bill Lee embracing.

“Great to have so many fellow Republican governors in The Volunteer State for @The_RGA Spring Meeting,” Lee added in a subsequent tweet.

Lee serves as policy chairman for the organization.
The governors from across the country have come together on many issues facing the country. For example, Republicans are leading the fight to ban the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in public schools in their state. Additionally, Republican-led states are ending the added, federal unemployment benefits that have encouraged many Americans to stay home instead of seeking a job.
According to the organization’s website, the RGA helps elect Republicans to governorships throughout the nation and provides them with the resources to help them govern effectively. Republicans currently occupy the majority of governorships throughout the United States.
The group’s meeting was fueled by the reduction of COVID-19 regulations and transmission throughout the state. Specifically, Nashville recently lifted their coronavirus restrictions and cases have continued to plummet.
