Senate District 28

Senator Hensley: (R) 2nd Vice Chair, Senate Finance, Ways and Means Committee, Member: Senate Health and Welfare Committee, and Senate Education Committee, Joint Pensions and Insurance Committee. Senator Hensley is one of the few heroes of the state senate. With an A+ in leadership and a 94% vote score this year, he stands out amongst his peers. He earned that grade by sponsoring 4 strong bills that we chose to endorse and score, and co-sponsoring 4 more. Senator Hensley speaks and acts on his conscience and his heart and mind are in the right place. He does not seem cowed by threats of lawsuits or criticism, …or the pressure from his fellows. Many them would be well-advised to model themselves after Senator Hensley. A senate like that would enable Tennessee to lead the nation in restoring the principles that made America an exceptional, safe, and prosperous place to live.
