GET USED TO HEARING THE NAME, BILL LEE …
Tonight business man Bill Lee won the Tennessee Republican Governor primary by nearly 100,000 votes. Lee garnered 37% of the vote in a crowded primary defeating the likes of Randy Boyd, Diane Black and Beth Harwell. Bill Lee ran his campaign the right way and won the election the same. He never went negative, even though some of his opponents did so in a disgraceful manner. Hmm, a business man pulling off a Cinderella type upset in a political election, sound familiar? It should. The Volunteer State voted Donald Trump in as president in 2016, look for the folks in Tennessee to do the same in 2018 for Bill Lee in the governors race. He is a great businessman, a man of deep religious faith and conviction, and a good man.
In arguably the biggest Cinderella story in Tennessee Republican politics in decades, Williamson County businessman Bill Lee on Thursday secured the GOP nomination for governor.
Lee bested a formidable field of opponents that included U.S. Rep. Diane Black, Knoxville entrepreneur Randy Boyd and House Speaker Beth Harwell.
Republican Bill Lee and Democrat Karl Dean to face off in the Tennessee governor race this November. Democrat Karl Dean has a tough row to hoe as the votes just don’t seem to be there to win a general election against Lee.
Tennessee has decided. Businessman Bill Lee and former Nashville Mayor Karl Dean will face off in the race for Tennessee’s next governor.
Lee topped U.S. Rep. Diane Black, ex-state economic development commissioner Randy Boyd and state House Speaker Beth Harwell in a race that cost more than $45 million. Much of that money came from the candidates themselves.
The candidates painted themselves as the most devoted to President Donald Trump and his tough-on-immigration priorities. They questioned each other’s allegiance to the president and his policies.
Lee called himself the race’s only conservative outsider and focused heavily on his Christian beliefs.
He ran ads saying attacking him isn’t what a leader does and some people will say or do anything to get elected.
Lee heads his family’s mechanical contracting, facilities and home services firm.
This is only the beginning for Bill Lee. You heard it hear. One day this individual will be running for president.
