The Tennessee Republican Party re-elected Scott Golden as its Chairman to a second two-year term.
“I am deeply honored and grateful to have the opportunity to lead our state’s Republican Party once again, and I thank the members of our State Executive Committee for their continued trust.” said Chairman Golden. “Tennessee Republicans made history this past year and we continued to build on a foundation of success that put us in prime position to expand our supermajorities in the General Assembly and help re-elect President in 2020.”
“I would like to congratulate Jennifer Little, Shannon Haynes, Beth Scott Clayton Amos and Pat Allen on their elections to Vice Chair, Treasurer, Vice Treasurer and Secretary respectively.” said Chairman Golden. “These women have the skills and long history of dedication to our Party that will be instrumental to our success during the 2020 cycle.”
Golden chaired the Tennessee Republican Party through the 2018 general elections, a historic year for Republicans in the Volunteer State:
- Republican Marsha Blackburn was elected as the first woman to represent Tennessee in the U.S. Senate
- Republican Bill Lee was elected as the first Republican to succeed a Republican governor in Tennessee
- Republican supermajorities were maintained in the State House and State Senate
Golden’s second term will run until December 2020.
