Tennessee Republican Assembly (TRA) announces endorsements for 2014 state races.

The Tennessee Republican Assembly (TRA) is chartered by the National Federation of Republican Assemblies (NFRA). The TRA is a socially and fiscally conservative group of individuals committed to returning the Republican Party to its original platform by upholding the traditional Republican ideals that represent the American founders’ original intent. We believe in God, family, and the Constitution. We support policies that expand the rights, liberties, and responsibilities of the individual, and policies that reduce the size and spending of government. We believe principles should always come before politics.
