With the retirement of Senator Alexander, the race is on to become Tennessee’s next senator.

Know Candidates’ Views Before Voting November 3

Alexander long advocated for Tennessee’s wildlife and wild places, including the recent passage of the Great American Outdoors Act.

If we want to see victories like that in the future, it’s up to sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts to let candidates know that the great outdoors is an important voting issue.

So, Tennessee Wildlife Federation asked every candidate to share their views on conservation, and below are the responses we received.

As you head to the voting booth, consider your impact. Your vote sends a message about the topics most important to you. Make our lands, water, and wildlife priorities, and make Tennessee’s next senator work for you.

Early voting start October 14. Find your polling location here.
