TN Dems Call For County Support

The chairman of the Tennessee Democratic Party is encouraging party supporters to attend county conventions.

Chip Forrester said the conventions, held every two years, are a way “to take back Tennessee for working people.”

In the coming weeks, county Democratic parties across the state will host local conventions where Democrats will pick new county party officers and lay the groundwork for selecting delegates for the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

Forrester said in a news release Wednesday that the strength of the state party comes from the dedication and hard work of people who take a leadership role at the local level.
