Letter from the Editor: Hello fellow Americans It’s the most wonderful time of year. No, not Christmas. I wish it was Christmas. It’s that time of year that everyone of the age of 18 can vote for who they want in offices across the county, state and nation. For some, it’s a leap-for-joy, I can’t wait to vote feeling.

took time out of what I know is a busy schedule to stand in line (or maybe walk right up?) to the polls. The races this year have presented themselves as tight— especially in the race for Tennessee’s open Senate seat. Republican candidate Congressman Marsha Blackburn and Democratic candidate former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen will face off in what has been a spicy and close race this season. The last debate between the two wound up in Knoxville and Staff Writer Kurt Welch was there. For a recap, check out our website. If you just want to know more about Blackburn and Bredesen, see pages four and five in this issue. Another key race in Tennessee this midterm season? The fight for governor of Tennessee.

Kelly Alley

Columnist As election day inches closer, our regularly scheduled programs are broken up and assaulted by more and more commercials for your next representative. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting tired of seeing those degrading political ads on TV. “But that’s what they signed up for!” some might say. No. No one willingly signs up to have their morals attacked when they decide to run against someone for office. To me, that attack should actually speak more for the opponent’s morals — they endorse the ads, after all. To me, the world of politics is like a melting chocolate bar. It’s messy, sticky and taints anything it drips on, yet people still find it worth indulging in. In this comparison, I think I’d rather have the chocolate goo. Not that there’s anything wrong with politics or political views. I just don’t want to be harassed because of a “suspected” view. Just because I’m a college student doesn’t mean that I have a left-leaning political tendency. Nor does it mean that I’ll be easily swayed by these views.

Just because I was born and raised in the South doesn’t mean I’m a staunch conservative either. Being raised in a conservative environment does not ensure that I’ll hold those same views, after all. Actually, I’m a middle-of-the-road young adult when it comes to politics. I’m a moderate, but I find myself slipping into the oblivion of democracy with each political ad I have to suffer through. I keep asking myself when election season will end — I’m sick of it all. My road didn’t even get repaved, and it’s as old as I am! Oh well — at least our potholes got filled in. In journalism school, we’re taught to avoid bias in our reporting, especially concerning politics. As a columnist, I’m sticking my tongue out at this rule — sort of. This is the opinions section, after all. I really don’t care what someone’s political view is, as long as they’re nice to those around them. If they’re not causing harm to another being, just let people live the way they want to live. Most people follow this idea. Some don’t — they’re affectionately termed “extremists.” I’m not a big fan of these groups, but I’m still going to acknowledge what they’re fighting for. I like to keep an open mind. I’m not saying we all need to abandon all politics and become anarchists or form communes and sing Kumbaya every day when the sun sets. I just want you to look at another person’s perspective. We’re all different people, we all have different backgrounds and experiences — it’s time for

us to collectively realize that. It’s my observation that the younger generation usually sides with the Democrats, while the older generation typically sides with the Republicans. It’s a vicious battle between these two groups that only results in a stalemate. Isn’t it great? Speaking of generations, the time our parents and grandparents grew up in differs greatly from the age we younger folks are faced with right now. It’s not fair to draw a comparison between the two. Just stop it — it’s pointless and just results in more hard feelings between the generations. The idea of Democrat or Republican isn’t even a fair way to describe the two groups today anyways. For practical purposes and clarification, I think we should come up with new, modern terms for the two main political factions. That’s what happened in the early/mid-1880s, anyways. If you’re registered and able to do it, go out and vote. I don’t even care who for — just vote. Make your voice heard. Change will never happen either way if you don’t. Besides, then you’ll actually have a reason to complain if the election doesn’t go the way you want. Kelly Alley is a bookworm and history nerd studying journalism and electronic media.

Nelson looking to represent changing Tennessee Paige Greene Copy Chief

Midterm season isn’t over for senior in sociology Edward Nelson. It won’t be until Nov. 6 — when Nelson finds out whether he has been elected to represent District 19 in the Tennessee House of Representatives. Nelson is the first Democrat to run in the district in 16 years. “We’re running in an area that has largely been forgotten by the Democratic party — and really forgotten by the Republican party too,” Nelson said. “It’s unfortunate that the Democratic party has felt that way because there are a lot of people out there in need of real change.” Real change is what Nelson is looking to provide. “(The primaries) were the first time in a generation, and in many cases the first time in many (voters’) lives, that they were able to vote for their values, to vote for someone they believed in,” Nelson said. “That goes a long way.” The values Nelson represents span from the

expansion of Medicaid to increased gun control to the legalization of marijuana. In short, Nelson said, he’d like to see Tennessee “get it together.” “I think that if we’re the Volunteer state, we should stand for Volunteer values. Our values can’t be not giving people healthcare, paying people the absolute bare minimum, having people live in poverty (and) not providing basic services to folks. Those aren’t the Volunteer values that I believe in, at least. “If we’re going to keep calling ourselves (Volunteers), we need to get it together in a lot of ways.” Nelson said that as a sociology student, he has spent a lot of time talking about problems such as unemployment and racial inequality. In his campaign office, though, he focuses on solutions. Expand Medicaid Expanding Medicaid, Nelson argued, is key to solving the opioid crisis, to fostering a healthier Tennessee and to decreasing the amount of money Tennesseeans must spend on healthcare each year. “Our number one priority is expanding Medicaid,” Nelson said. “If you’re against expanding Medicaid, you just have to be honest and say that you don’t want your money to go

to helping people down the street from you.” Institute a living wage “We feel that (Tennessee’s lack of a state minimum wage) tells employers to pay their people as little as possible, and that’s not okay,” Nelson said. “I would like to see ‘minimum wage,’ that terminology, completely gone. ‘Living wage’ is what we should be talking about because people deserve to live.” Nelson said he would also like to repeal right to work laws in the state so that workers can unionize to increase their quality of life. Fully fund public education Nelson said that tying school funding to neighborhood is not a sustainable system; in fact, it amounts to “modern segregation.” According to Nelson, the answer is more equitable funding — not education vouchers or charter schools. “(We want to be) not only making sure that our schools (aren’t) falling down, but (funding education) in a way that our teachers are paid what they’re worth … and making sure that we have quality supplies and equipment in those classrooms — regardless of zip code,” Nelson said. On the postsecondary level, Nelson said he

would like to increase opportunities to attend both trade schools and universities and ensure affordability. Reform immigration Nelson said that his campaign has developed a comprehensive immigration policy that includes returning drivers licenses to undocumented immigrants and outlawing participation in the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) 287(g) program across the state. “In Knox County, we have 287(g); it’s a terrible program,” Nelson said. “We know it doesn’t make anybody safer. It makes us less safe.” Reform the criminal justice system “I really mean changing the criminal justice system: abolishing it and replacing it with something that looks completely different, unrecognizable to what it looks like now,” Nelson said. Nelson said he opposed plans to expand Knox County jail, which is under-manned and over capacity. Most people in jail, he said, don’t belong there; they’re awaiting trial and can’t afford cash bail, which Nelson would also like to abolish.

Phil Bredesen: Democratic candidate for Senate

Breakdown of Blackburn campaign

Margot McClellan

Cat Trieu

For those who are weary of partisan-driven battles and stalemates, Phil Bredesen seems to be your man. According to his campaign website, Bredesen has a successful political career thus far, having held the both the positions of Mayor and Governor of Tennessee. As you have probably heard in many ads for his campaign, he focused on bringing jobs to Tennessee and has his mind set on getting things done — that is, avoiding the stalemates and disagreements which cause actions on the federal level to be locked in without making much progress. When inquired regarding his reasons for running, Bredesen said, “I think the fundamental reason that I am running for this office at this point in my life is to try to start bringing some ability up in Washington to get things done. We’ve gotten into this mode over the past 10-15 years of everyone sort of standing on opposite sides of the room and shouting at each other, and not moving anything forward.” Although he acknowledges that his presence in the Senate won’t change the dynamic overnight, he remains to be a candidate with determination and intent to transform the status quo into something more productive and dialectical, which has the potential to bridge the gap between parties and move bills forward with input from both sides. Part of Bredesen’s desire to accomplish this is linked to how the youngest eligible voters are involved in politics. During his campaign, he remarked that he feared younger voters had become irate with the current state of politics, and perhaps they would be less inclined to participate in the process of law-making and voting for representatives within the branches of government. Although, to his surprise and gratification, many young adults did choose to become involved, via volunteering and interning with his campaign. Bredesen said,

Marsha Blackburn is determined to represent Tennessee values in Senate. As the Republican candidate running against Democratic candidate and former Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen for Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN)’s 8th Tennessee Congressional District seat, Blackburn has been traveling over 60,000 miles on her campaign trail for Tennesseans’ votes. “Getting everywhere I need to be on every given day is the most difficult part,” Blackburn said. “(Traveling) is something that takes a lot of time and planning and organization that is the most difficult part. We are campaigning every single day working hard to earn the vote of TN voters.” Blackburn (R-TN 7th District) is currently a congressman serving as part of the U.S. House of Representatives. Believing that the U.S. Senate needed to change, Blackburn decided to run to replace Corker as one of Tennessee’s senators. “What we need to see is some change, and I am going to Senate for some conservative, positive change,” Blackburn said. “As your Senator, what Tennesseans are going to find from me is that I will take their Tennessee values and put them to work in Washington DC to get done what they thought would be done to accomplish what they want to be accomplished.” Describing Tennesseans as “specific” in terms of what needs to be done in Senate, Blackburn explained her intention to vote to keep tax cuts and secure the southern border, stating Tennesseans’ desires to end sanctuary city policies if she was senator. “My main goal is to represent Tennesseans (and) to take their views to the Senate. Tennesseans are very concerned about those policy issues that I mentioned,” Blackburn said. “They also want to make certain that we do everything that we can do to reserve freedom, free people, free market (and) that we reserve the American dream so that our children and our grandchildren have the ability to experience their version of the American dream.” The U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced its endorsement of Blackburn on Aug. 15. “In Congress, (Blackburn) has worked to cut unnecessary regulations and create an economic climate that allows businesses to thrive,” Rob Engstrom, senior vice president and national political director at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce told the Tennessean. “The U.S. Chamber is proud to endorse her.” Blackburn also gained the endorsement of the National Rifle Association (NRA), with Chris Cox, chairman of the NRA Political Victory Fund, calling the Congressman a “cham-

“I expect to win, but win or lose, it has been very gratifying just to see how engaged young people have been in the political process here.” As part of Bredesen’s appeal to the younger generation, part of his agenda would include helping young adults attending college to be able to afford an education – more specifically, to be able to afford federal loan payments. As the loan system exists currently, Bredesen believes it is not only outdated, but too complex and should be modernized and simplified to reflect the current financial situations of many young adults going to college. Bredesen outlined that he would like the system to change to ultimately benefit students, not financial intermediaries as it exists in its current iteration. His plan would include lowering interest rates down to 3 percent, extending the period of time allotted to repay loans to thirty years, and to remove means-testing, which would allow most people to have access to the loan program and significantly shorten and simplify the application process.

pion of our Second Amendment freedoms,” on Sept. 19. “I was honored to receive the endorsement of the NRA,” Blackburn said, explaining that both she and Bredesen had applied for the endorsement. Spencer Ammen, junior in accounting and secretary of the College Republicans, expressed his support for Blackburn. “I think she’s very qualified for the job (of Senator),” Ammen said. “I think she’s done a great job in the House, and I think she has represented the great state of Tennessee very well.” Ammen listed Blackburn’s history and background as one of the first women on the sales team of Southwestern Company and assisting with the creation of a division in the company to be focused on women, as reasons for his prediction of success for her role as Senator. “I think it’s very exciting that (Blackburn) has the opportunity to be the first woman senator of Tennessee,” Ammen said. “I think she would do great in the Senate for us.” Andrew Dison, senior in political science and president of the College Democrats, disagreed. “(Blackburn) is not the right person for Tennessee,” Dison said. “She is someone who does not have (Tennessee) values.” Dison described Blackburn’s ideology as not representative of Tennessee, denouncing her “divisive rhetoric” and believing the Congressman is only “chasing after Trump’s agenda.” “Trump’s agenda does not work in Tennessee,” Dison said. “Her background in the opioid crisis and other issues just proves that she’s not going to be a representative in the Senate for every Tennessean; she is going to be a representative for the people that support Trump.”

Dean running moderate, education-based campaign Tyler Wombles

Managing Editor

Karl Dean isn’t a rookie in politics. By his own estimate, he has been elected to office five times, three as a public defender. But his most notable role has been that of the mayor of Nashville, a position he served in from 2007 to 2015. Now, Dean’s eyes are set on the governor’s chair. The Democratic candidate is locked in a race with Republican Bill Lee to replace Bill Haslam as governor of Tennessee “Nashville is one county. Traveling the whole state is different,” Dean said. “It’s a very diverse state. There’s all different interests in this state. I’ve enjoyed it immensely. I’ve learned a lot. It’s a beautiful state and I look forward to leading this state.” Dean prides himself on “centrist” approach A reputation of being moderate and not particularly partisan precedes Dean, partly due to his time as Nashville mayor. It’s a role he openly proclaims. “I think that the people of Tennessee, in my mind, are looking for somebody whose prag-

matic, has common sense, and can get things done,” Dean said. “I don’t think they’re looking for an extremist. I don’t think they’re looking for somebody who is going to analyze every issue through party lenses.” A native of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Dean led Nashville to advancements in educational and economic areas. He won re-election in 2011. “My experience as a mayor, where I ran in a non-partisan race, had to get Democrats, Republicans, independents to vote for me, I think is the right experience,” Dean said. “That’s what Bill Haslam did. That’s what Phil Bredesen did. I think our state looks for centrists, and that’s what I am.” Will Jennings, distinguished lecturer of political science, said that Dean’s campaign, which has used funding to run more ads than previous Democratic candidates, has been different than others for more reasons as well. “I don’t think he’s been necessarily all that partisan because he does have this sort of moderate profile as a governor of Nashville,” Jennings said. “So I don’t know that he has been strikingly partisan … I think that his message has been a lot more about firing up the base, hoping to juice Democratic turnout in a way that hasn’t necessarily been focused on in the last few election cycles.”

Education a top focus A key part of Dean’s campaign, and a major point of emphasis if he is elected governor, is public education. He lists it as the number one focus of his plan should he be elected. “My goal would be to make sure that we have great colleges and universities in Tennessee,”

Dean said. “I would be very supportive of them. And I would work to let the people who run the universities run the universities and do that in a way that is going to move our state forward.”

Bill Lee talks background, policies and aspirations ahead of election Allie Clouse

City News Editor

This year Tennesseans will elect their next governor. Every vote is vital to determining how the state will be represented for years to come. Many are wondering if the state will remain red or bleed blue. The governor is a critical player in our government system. Republican Bill Lee is one of the candidates for governor of Tennessee that voters can expect to see on their ballots this election season. Who is Bill Lee? Born and raised in Franklin, Tennessee, Lee prides himself on being a seventh-generation Tennessean and non-politician in the race. As a “conservative outsider,” Lee plans to bring his business experience to the position. Although this is the first time Lee has run for an elected office in Tennessee, he feels his 35 years of business and non-profit leadership provides him “unique executive leadership expertise to lead the executive branch of government in Tennessee”. After graduating from Auburn University with a degree in mechanical engineering, Lee took over the family business, Lee Company,

a residential and commercial heating, cooling, electrical, plumbing and appliance service. Since, Lee has been dedicated to his family, faith, community and business. Currently, Lee serves as chairman of Lee Company, 7th Congressional District’s representative to the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, is on the Board of Trustees at Belmont University, is a member of Grace Chapel Church and farms on his family’s fourth-generation farm, Triple L Ranch. Criminal justice reform Bill Lee has addressed criminal justice reform during his campaign with a conservative attitude. On his website, Lee emphasizes that Tennesseans must stand with law enforcement to keep communities safe. Lee recognizes, “You can be both tough and smart on crime,” with “truth-in-sentencing,” or the guarantee that sentences given to offenders will stick. Lee also advocates for a criminal justice system that prioritizes the sentencing of violent offenders over non-violent offenders in order to reduce recidivism and lower costs. “Tennessee’s recidivism rate is astonishingly high … 95% of people in our jails are getting out but many of them will re-commit a crime,” Lee said in an interview The Daily Beacon. “We need to help those who are getting out be better prepared to re-enter society,

not re-enter prison.” Lee has credited his involvement with the program Men of Valor, Nashville-based prison ministry and mentoring, to inspiring his feelings on criminal justice reform. Opioid crisis The opioid crisis is an urgent concern for

many Tennesseans and a major deciding factor in the election. Bill Lee builds upon his ideas for criminal justice reform by claiming that he will not incarcerate out of addiction.
