COOKEVILLE, TN – John Rose has won the race for Tennessee’s 6th Congressional District. The race was called shortly after 7pm with Rose ahead by 41%. Rose was the Republican nominee for the open seat held by Congressman Diane Black that includes all or part of 19 counties east and northeast of Nashville.
“I am excited to get to work in Congress for the people of the 6th District,” Rose said. Rose is a solid conservative who is a native of the district. He is a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment, endorsed by the NRA, and is 100% pro-life.
Rose has pledged to take Tennessee values to Washington and get Washington out of Tennessee by using a common-sense approach to solving the nation’s problems. Rose stated, “We need to take on our debt issue instead of shy away from it, build the wall, support our president, and create a healthcare system that works for all Americans. We have a lot of work to do, but I am ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work.”
The Rose Campaign knocked on over 60,000 doors and made over 80,000 phone calls to voters over the course of the campaign. Rose attended hundreds of events across the district and will keep that same energy of meeting constituents in the future. “I am honored by the support I have received in this race and I will do my absolute best to represent my family, friends, and community here in the 6th District,” Rose said.
