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!
