Rural Road Trip

On August 16th, I left from Mountain City on my tractor to begin my Rural Road Trip tractor tour across Tennessee. We went from Mountain City to Marshall County in August, and Marshall County to Memphis in October. You can see our list of stops at the bottom of this page. We kicked off our campaign with a 95-day tour through every county in Tennessee. Maria and I learned a lot, but one thing we now know for sure is that our rural communities and small towns are hurting. If we don’t take action now, we risk losing that way of life forever. I’m taking this Rural Road Trip to promote my values and ideas that can help our rural communities and small towns. My plan is called the Roadmap for Rural Tennessee, and you can learn more about it here.  I also released a new video about my Rural Roadmap, and you can view it below:  

Many have asked me why I’m choosing to kick off my campaign talking about rural Tennessee, instead of other issues. Tennessee is often called a rural state with a few big cities. There’s some truth to that, but the reality is that our urban centers and rural communities are interconnected. I’m thrilled to see our larger cities doing so well. We need to keep that up, and I’ll have a lot to say about that too as the campaign goes forward. But here’s the bottom line: what happens in rural Tennessee impacts everyone in our state, and a plan to improve rural Tennessee will benefit all of us. I look forward to traveling the state again and promoting my ideas for an even better Tennessee. See you soon.
