Follow Up on Tennessee Republican Party Witch Hunt

Yesterday we reported on the opposition of some Tennessee Republicans running for a position on the Tennessee State Executive Committee as well as some running for public office. It has been rumored that this opposition came from the Governor’s office itself for many of these individuals.

A special committee of five (5) State Executive Committee members was formed in order to review the bona fide Republican status of candidates. This committee meet yesterday and make a recommendation to TNGOP Chairman Chris Devaney to dismiss the challenges in regards to State Executive positions except for Matt Collins and Chairman Devaney agreed.

It was told that the “evidence” behind the challenge was so thin that the Committee of five dismissed the challenge unanimously, and Chairman Devaney agreed.

Richard Archie had never filed his paper work which is a story for another time.
