Bill Taylor, Democratic contender in the 3rd District Congressional race, on Thursday announced the opening of campaign headquarters at 7047 Lee Highway, Suite 101 of the London Center. The headquarters will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday.
Campaign materials will be available and volunteers can register to help, schedule call time, and arrange canvassing territory.
Mr. Taylor said, “The campaign is gaining momentum with more than 15 events and appearances scheduled before the end of June. These events are scheduled in Monroe, Hamilton, Bradley, Roane, Anderson, Polk, and Union Counties. And many events are already on the books for July.
"We are very pleased with the response we are getting from voters all over the district,” he said, reviewing the travels of the last few months. Past events have included two "Candidate Shootout Challenges" highlighting Mr. Taylor’s support of Second Amendment rights.
Fundraising is also building for the campaign and will culminate this quarter with the “Backroom Strategy Session,” an invitation-only event on June 28, at The Bluewater Grille in downtown Chattanooga.
"Our moderate, Southern Democrat message is finding a receptive audience in the 3rd District,” Mr. Taylor said, "It’s a reasonable approach to government the voters want."
Officials said The Taylor for Congress campaign was the first to begin television advertising with multiple ads airing during May 9’s Belmont Stakes on WRCB/Channel 3.
