A sincere thank you

August 7, 2010

A final note from Jeff

On behalf of my entire family, I want to express my heartfelt thanks to so many who spent numerous hours of their time and gave maximum effort to our attempt to prevail in this 2010 Primary.  Our team mapped out a strategy at the beginning to touch all the bases necessary to win and, for the most part, we accomplished those goals.  The voters have spoken and the process moves forward to November.



Get out and Vote.

July 23, 2010

We are halfway home folks. We have been asking for your votes now for almost 7 months, and we are right in the middle of early voting. Now is the time to get to the polls and make your voice heard.

In the interest of helping you make your way to the polls across the 5th District, I asked our staff to put together some helpful hints on where to go vote. There have only been a few locations open across the district, but that all changes on Monday, July 26th.

If you are unsure of where to vote, that isn’t an issue in Early Voting. You should be able to go to any polling location (within your county of residence) and vote. Here is the information:


An endorsement for Jeff

July 13, 2010

Today I am proud to announce that the “New Voice for the People” has been endorsed by 2008 Presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and his PAC, Huck PAC.


Misinformation strikes again

July 5, 2010

This past weekend, an article in the Examiner quoted a couple of other candidates in the 2010 GOP Primary for Tennessee’s Fifth District Congressional election misrepresenting some of my positions. So, in order to clear things up, I put together a brief response to the article in order to make sure the voters know my positions on the issues discussed at the GOP meeting Saturday morning.


June 30th News

June 30, 2010

The past two weeks for the campaign have been absolutely phenomenal. We’ve been a part of many events, voter meetings, speaking engagements, and much more. As such, it’s become more difficult to blog consistently. Because of this blogging break, I wanted to update you on the recent news from our Campaign HQ on 21st Avenue South.


It’s just like Monopoly money

May 25, 2010

First, it was AIG.  Then it was Goldman Sachs.  Then GM, Chrysler, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, ad nauseum.   Bailout after bailout after bailout.  And it’s not over yet?

Last year, Congress passed several stimulus bills under the guise of “shovel-ready” projects.  The only shovel that was ready was the shovel being used by individual state workers ready for layoffs because of irresponsible state spending during the past decade.  Good news is that the fellow holding the shovel got to work an extra year.  Bad news is that the stimulus money was a one-and-out.


Finance Committee News

May 14, 2010

It’s been a busy week in our campaign. This is some news we’ve been waiting to share with our supporters and also those looking for someone to support in August and also in November. Please see below for a press release from Friday, May 14th.


NASHVILLE – A fast-growing list of Nashville business leaders and executives have already committed to contribute and raise more than $500,000 for congressional candidate Jeff Hartline’s campaign for the 5th District congressional seat currently held by Jim Cooper.


Well, that’s one you can’t take back…

May 11, 2010

It appears that someone may have been mistaken when he voted in favor of the HealthCare bill. Congressman Jim Cooper told us he voted for health care reform because it would lower the long-term federal deficit but, once again, he has proven to be wrong on fiscal policy.

The Congressional Budget Office released new estimates today that health care reform will cost $110 billion more than was claimed when Congress passed the legislation last month. In fact, costs are now expected to exceed $1 trillion over the next 10 years. The new CBO estimate wipes out President Obama’s claim that health care reform would reduce the federal deficit by more than $100 billion over the next 10 years.


Immigration and America

April 30, 2010

Two posts from earlier this week each dealt with Immigration Law and Border Security. When discussing a topic like immigration, it is necessary to define the issue.

The issue for most Americans is not “immigration,” but ILLEGAL immigration. I have often heard the following argument made in regard to immigration law: “America is a country founded on immigration.” That is a fallacy. America was founded and formed on the basis of legal immigration. Most of you reading this were likely born here, so the worry associated with becoming a citizen of the United States would never be a concern for you, nor is it a concern for me.


A response to Rep. Cooper’s “Slice Government” editorial

April 29, 2010

In Rep. Jim Cooper’s editorial in the Tennessean this week, he attempts to explain how we should “Slice Government, Close Loopholes.”

Rep. Cooper, I must say I was surprised by the content of your editorial. You succeed in bashing former President Reagan for raising spending, yet our current spending level is 1.2% higher (based on GDP) today than it was during Reagan’s Presidency, as evidenced by your editorial. You say the key is to find balance in government. This probably sounds great to most of the folks living in the Fifth District. However, I believe you miss the point entirely.
