NASHVILLE, Tenn.-November 9, 2016—The Tennessee Republican Party released the following statement from Chairman Ryan Haynes regarding tonight's national and state election results:
“Americans spoke loudly tonight. They want this nation to be even better than it already is. I want to congratulate Donald Trump for his win in the race for President of the United States. The task falls to him to unite this country and promote the policy solutions that will enhance opportunity for each and every American.
“Closer to home, Tennesseans have decided to maintain—and enlarge—the Republican supermajorities in our state. It’s easy to understand why: More Tennesseans have a job than ever before, we’ve achieved new heights in education, and our state has been run in a fiscally-responsible manner under GOP leadership. We’re providing a blueprint for how this nation should be run and that would not be possible without the steady, conservative hands of Governor Bill Haslam, Lieutenant Governor Ron Ramsey, and Speaker Beth Harwell, as well our Republican legislators.”
