Vote Right for Congress
Vote Roe, Duncan, or Fleischmann
Congressman Phil Roe (R-Tennessee 01) is running for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives after a freshman term where he has managed to win the confidence and goodwill of many of the people who didn't vote for him in the hotly-contested 2008 primary where he defeated then-incumbent freshman Republican David Davis by less than 500 votes. Roe's primary win over Davis two years ago was a follow-up on the bitter 2006 primary campaign where Davis had won with similar numbers in a field of 12 candidates. During his brief time in office, the pro-life obstetrician who proudly boasts of having delivered over 5,000 babies has developed a reputation for constituent service equally worthy of his noted long-serving predecessors Bill Jenkins and Jimmy Quillen. Roe is also unafraid to use the internet and new media to spread the conservative message. Your Examiner has never known a member of Congress to personally return a constituent call while on a family vacation, but Congressman Roe did just that for this writer. Such commitment to service is why the former Johnson City Mayor and City Commissioner should be re-elected to the House.
