Congressman Bob Clement, Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, announced today he has named prominent Tennessee attorney Bob Tuke as State Finance Chairman for his campaign.
“Bob Tuke has already proven to be a tremendous asset to our campaign. His energy, intellect and discipline will help us put together a first-class finance operation and raise the money we need to communicate with Tennessee voters,” Clement said.
Tuke is a partner in the law firm Trauger, Ney & Tuke in Nashville. His practice focuses on corporate and securities law, health care, and adoption law. He is General Counsel for Meharry Medical College and an Adjunct Professor at Vanderbilt University School of Law. Tuke is a member of the Nashville, Tennessee, and American Bar Associations, the National Association of Bond Lawyers and the American Health Lawyers Association. He is President and a Trustee of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys and a Fellow of the Nashville Bar Foundation. He is listed in Best Lawyers in America.
“I’m proud to be a part of the Clement team,” Tuke said. “I believe Bob Clement will be a great Senator who will get things done for Tennessee families. I will work hard to make sure that Bob has the resources he needs to claim victory on Election Day.”
“Bob Tuke is a leader in the Tennessee legal community and a leader in Nashville,” Clement said. “He’s just the type of person we need heading up our finance effort.”
Clement, an Army veteran who recently retired from the Tennessee National Guard with the rank of Colonel, said Tuke’s commitment to Tennessee is only part of the reason why he selected the prominent attorney as his state finance chairman.
“Bob Tuke is a great attorney who is totally dedicated to Tennessee. However, Bob Tuke also served our nation as a Marine in Vietnam,” Clement noted. “Bob Tuke combines the experience and intellect of a gifted attorney with the disciplined toughness of a Marine and that’s why I believe he will do a great job for our campaign.”
