Senator John Stevens Begins Re-Election Campaign


paid political announcement

State Senator John Stevens (R-Huntingdon) announced he is seeking re-election in the August 1 Republican Primary. Stevens, a lifelong conservative, has served in the Tennessee Senate since 2012.
“I’m seeking another term in the Senate to continue providing conservative leadership in Northwest Tennessee,” said Stevens. “I’m honored to serve on the Senate Finance Committee, where I’m involved in key decision-making about our state’s economy,” remarked Stevens.
Stevens is particularly proud of his efforts to grow Tennessee’s economy. During his tenure, Tennessee has been ranked the best state in the country for business. Stevens voted to reduce the franchise and excise tax on small businesses, which frees up resources for Tennessee businesses to invest in new equipment, hire more workers, and provide pay raises to employees.
Stevens has made support for local farmers a top priority. “Farmers are critical to Tennessee’s

vibrant economy. I voted to eliminate the sales tax on agricultural products so our farmers can better compete with those in other states,” said Stevens.
Standing up for law and order is also important to Stevens. He voted for Tennessee’s “Truth in Sentencing” law that requires violent criminals to serve their full prison sentence without parole.
He supported funding for additional State Troopers to keep our highways safe. Stevens says he will continue to oppose President Biden’s agenda during a new term. “The Biden agenda is bad for Tennessee. Biden’s Administration is crushing our economy, killing American energy, bankrupting the Treasury, and allowing lawlessness to go unpunished. We have a catastrophe at the Southern border. I’ll do everything possible to fight the Biden agenda in Tennessee,” remarked Stevens.
Stevens is pro-life and a strong defender of the Second Amendment. He begins the election year with over $200,000 in his campaign account to spread his message of conservative leadership across Northwest Tennessee.
Stevens and his wife, Elicia, are the parents of two daughters. They reside in Huntingdon, where he practices elder law. Stevens represents Senate District 24, which includes Benton, Carroll, Gibson, Henry, Houston, Obion, Stewart, and Weakley counties. Visit JohnStevens.gop for more information.
