Mike McWherter kicked off his ad campaign today. Campaign manager Kim Sasser Hayden:
“As we move to the general election, we wanted to set the table on Mike’s plan to grow our economy by supporting Tennessee small businesses and working families. As Bill Haslam spends millions of dollars trying to defend his record of raising property taxes, price gouging Tennesseans at the gas pump and hiding his vast oil wealth, Tennessee voters realize he is not the character he has tried to create in his television ads.
“While Haslam, Ramsey and Wamp are trying to appeal to the extreme fringe, Mike McWherter is talking about common sense solutions that will put Tennesseans back to work. It’s unfortunate Tennessee families are being bombarded by the Republican's dirty laundry every time they turn on the television, we will continue to focus our campaign on the real issues that matter to every Tennessean.”
