Former Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Endorses Dan Howell

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Chip Saltsman, former Tennessee Republican Party Chairman and chief-of-staff to Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, endorsed Dan Howell's campaign for State House District 22.

 

"I have worked closely with Dan over the years, and I know he is the man for the job.

Dan knows the people of Southeast Tennessee like few others, and he stands strongly for the conservative values that are needed in Nashville. I am glad to lend my support to Dan. I know he will serve well in Nashville, and never forget the community he comes from," Mr. Saltsman said.

 

Mr. Howell said, "I am honored to have Chip's support, and I am excited to have him on my team. Chip knows Republican politics in Tennessee unlike any person I know. Whether it be Bill Frist, Chuck Fleischmann, or Mike Huckabee, Chip has not only fought hard to elect the conservative fighters our country needs, but he has also won a lot of those fights along the way. Having lived and worked in Bradley County, and having served as Congressman Fleischmann's chief-of-staff, Chip knows the people of Southeast Tennessee and knows we need to continue the tradition of great leadership our area has had. I look forward to drawing on Chip's insights and expertise." 

 

Mr. Saltsman will be the guest of honor at a fundraiser for Mr. Howell later this week.

 

District 22 covers parts of Bradley County, and all of Polk and Meigs counties.

 

Chip Saltsman is a national political operative who managed Governor Mike Huckabee’s campaign for president, was a senior advisor to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN), was chief-of-staff to Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, and served as Chairman of the Tennessee Republican Party. He is also a frequent commentator for Fox News, and other TV and print outlets.

 

Outside of politics, Saltsman has served as a director with Harpeth Capital Investment Banking in Nashville. He has served as founder and president of S&S Strategies, and has been very active in the world of private equity, with a focus on real estate investment.
