GOP Fundraising Statewide for Faulk

The election of a Republican Senator in Tennessee's 4th Senate District has very important statewide implications not only for Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey and the State Senate, but also for all members of the State House and the U.S. Congress. The Senator we elect in November 2008 will hold the Redistricting pen in his hand in 2011.

Until the current Senator representing the 4th Senate District, which includes Hawkins County, abandoned the Republican party, the GOP had a majority in the State Senate and was in a position to prevent the Democrats from gerrymandering Tennessee seats in the U.S. Congress and in both chambers of the Tennessee General Assembly after the next Census. Now the Tennessee Senate is evenly split with 16 Republicans, 16 Democrats, and 1 flip-flopping Independent.

Ask yourself one simple question: "in whose hand do you trust the redistricting pen: a rock-solid conservative Republican or someone who quit the GOP team?"

Republicans by the hundreds from all over Tennessee are doing their part to see that Mike Faulk holds that Redistricting pen in the State Senate. Out-of-district fundraisers have already been held for Hawkins County's Mike Faulk in Nashville, Knoxville, Kingsport, Johnson City, and Greeneville. In-district fundraisers have been held in Union, Grainger and Jefferson Counties.

Hosts have included former Governor Winfield Dunn, Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey, numerous former State GOP Chairmen, and numerous current and former State Representatives. Special Guests have included U.S. Congressman Marsha Blackburn and former U.S. Congressman Bill Jenkins.

Now folks as far away as Memphis are offering their help. Shelby County District Attorney General Bill Gibbons, former Shelby County Mayor Jim Rout, and State GOP Treasurer Ed Roberson are hosting a fundraising reception for Faulk on Tuesday, March 18, 2008 at 6:00pm at Roberson's home in Memphis. If you have friends in west state Tennessee, let them know they can help and RSVP by calling 901-435-0156.

Mike Faulk attended graduate school and law school in Memphis, worked as a Management Analyst for Shelby County governent, and was the Courtroom clerk for a Memphis Chancellor before returning to home in Hawkins County. While in Shelby County he managed the Gubernatorial Campaign for Lamar Alexander in House District 93 and was the Campaign Manager for a candidate for Congress that included Shelby County.

Former 1st District Congressional Candidate Vance Cheek, Jr. will host a fundraising picnic for Mike Faulk at his Boone Lake home in Washington County on the afternoon of April 26th. More details will follow.

Congressman Zach Wamp will be the special guest for a Chattanooga fundraiser on May 9, 2008 for the Faulk for Senate campaign. Additional information will also follow on this event. Or you can contact Mike's campaign headquarters: (423) 357-8088 or

Hawkins Countians anxiously await an imminent announcement soon for Mike Faulk's first Hawkins County fundraising event.
