Phil Bredesen is running for US Senate and, if he wins in November, that likely means the US Senate has flipped.

But, there’s only one path to victory for Phil Bredesen and for Tennessee Democrats. That path runs right through Shelby County, TN. Shelby County is Tennessee’s largest county and there are more Democrats in Shelby County than anywhere else in the state of Tennessee. However, even with all the Democrats in Shelby County, the Democratic party routinely loses. We can change that this year. In August, Democrats will elect the next mayor of Shelby County, TN. Lee Harris is our Democratic candidate for mayor of Shelby County.

If Lee Harris can win Shelby County in August, that momentum will energize our county Democrats. That energy and momentum will carry Democrats to victory in November.

Lee Harris will need to build infrastructure to win Shelby County and that’s where your help comes in.

You can read more about Lee here. If you like what you read, please consider pitching in. We can win Shelby County. We can energize Democrats in Tennessee. We can take the US Senate.

    “I support Lee Harris. He first came to my attention by my then 10 year old grandson who told me that I should vote for his classmate’s dad. I asked him who that was and he said, Lee Harris. Since then I have learned more about Lee and I have been impressed. He has supported Moms Demand Action in our work to prevent gun violence. I volunteered at a fundraiser event for him and he is the nicest man and truly cares to make Shelby County a better place to live.”
