Local GOP Groups Disagree With RINO Vote Allowing Democrats To Vote In GOP Primaries

The Tennessee House Local Government Committee has now killed multiple bills this legislative session that would have ensured party election integrity for their constituents and the state of Tennessee as a whole. 

Committee Vice-Chair Dave Wright, and Representatives Rebecca Alexander, Dale Carr, Michael Hale, Esther Helton-Haynes, and John B. Holsclaw all participated in voice votes against House Bill 0405(HB0405) by Rep. Bryan Richey (R-Maryville-District 20) and House Bill 1045 (HB1045) by Rep. Kelly Keisling (R-Byrdstown-District 38).

Rep. William Slater was present but did not vote on HB0405. However, he reportedly voted in favor of HB1045. Similarly, Committee Chair John Crawford was recorded as voting in favor of HB1045, but not HB0405.

As Republican lawmakers in Tennessee continue to vote against conservative legislation time and time again, the term RINO (Republican in Name Only) becomes more relevant than ever, leaving their conservative base to wonder what exactly their representatives are doing that warrants reelection.

Frankly, it is alarming when legislators start voting against the will of the people who elected them in the first place.

So began The Tennessee Conservative’s mission to find out what exactly Republican constituents had to say about closing the state’s primaries.

Despite a lack of response from Carter County GOP Chair Josh Hardin as well as Sullivan County GOP Chair Bill Kilgore’s refusal to comment, responses from folks in Trousdale, Hamilton, Sumner, Sevier, Knox, and Unicoi Counties were overwhelmingly in favor of closing Republican primaries.
