Candidate Spotlight: Jerri Green for HD 83

Jerri Green is One Tough Mother. She is an attorney, educator, human rights worker, community volunteer and a survivor of gun violence. Jerri is running for House District 83 in Memphis and Germantown, which has never been represented by a woman.

When elected, Jerri will be the only mother of school aged children in the TN House. She is running a top-notch campaign and has consistently been among the highest fundraisers for a challenger House candidate this cycle.

Jerri’s hard work and impressive fundraising means the campaign was able to go on air with their first TV ad! Polling in this race has Jerri within striking distance and being on TV will help her close the gap. Will you join WTF and help Jerri keep her TV ad on air until Election Day by making a contribution to her campaign?

Candidate Spotlight: Mayor Heidi Campbell

Good news: Mayor Heidi Campbell just released internal polling that shows her ahead of incumbent GOP Senator Steve Dickerson!

Campbell: 49%
Dickerson: 47%
Undecided: 4%

That puts the race for Senate District 20 in the “toss-up” column. SD 20 is the last seat in Davidson County that is held by a Republican, and it’s time we flip it from red to blue. Together, we can help her get it done.

Mayor Campbell just released her latest TV ad. Her opponent has already spent $100,000 on TV advertising. Let’s help Mayor Campbell fight back, and get her ad on the air for longer. Every dollar you chip-in goes to helping Heidi get her message out far and wide!

THEN:

We can win this. And when we do, Mayor Campbell will be the first woman to represent Senate District 20. Are you ready to make history in Davidson County and #ElectWTFWomen?! Please chip-in! Thank you!

 

Candidate Spotlight: Andrea Bond Johnson for HD 82

We can win this one back.

Andrea Bond Johnson is running for House District 82, which includes Crockett, Haywood and Lauderdale counties. Andrea was previously endorsed by WTF in 2018 when she ran for this same seat, coming up a little bit short.

This is the district that was held by Representative Craig Fitzhugh, who served for 24 years. Former Democratic Leader and current Ripley Mayor Fitzhugh, along with the entire Haywood County School Board, has endorsed Andrea’s candidacy.

Good newscampaign polling in this race is encouraging. The margin is close, and when voters hear Andrea’s message, they like what they hear.

We must make sure enough voters hear Andrea’s message. HD 82 is a large District and one of the ways the campaign is reaching their rural voters is through radio.

According to the campaign, a contribution of $25 will cover the cost of two radio ads…a contribution of $100 will cover the cost of ten! Let’s ensure Andrea has the resources to reach voters in every corner of the district!

Candidate Spotlight: Gabby Salinas For HD 97

Gabby Salinas is running for House District 97 in Shelby County. Gabby was previously endorsed by WTF when she ran for State Senate in 2018, coming up short by a heartbreaking one point. Gabby is running in what is widely considered one of Tennessee’s most flippable districts. With your help right now, we can turn Gabby’s heartbreaking loss into a success story.

Gabby is a scientist, a three-time cancer survivor, and a healthcare advocate. She immigrated to the U.S. to receive life-saving treatment as a child at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the same hospital where she is a former research technologist in the department of Chemical Biology and Therapeutics.

The Republican attacks against her have started and they are xenophobic. Let’s help Gabby defend against the lies. Please chip-in whatever you can.

As Gabby says, “We are a country of immigrants. I became a citizen thanks to the help of a Republican legislator, Senator Fred Thompson, a true statesman. I know firsthand the impact legislation has on everyday people – my family has lived it.”

Gabby will be a leader when it comes to public education, healthcare and human rights.

With your help, we will flip this swing district from red to blue, but we can’t do it alone. Please chip-in if you can!
