“I can’t think of a better way to start the campaign than with a family-friendly event in the heart of the district,” Rose said in a press release. “I am running for Congress to help ensure the America we leave our children is better than the America our parents left us. This event is another way to show my commitment to the people of the Sixth District.”

Rose is an eighth-generation Tennessean, farmer, small-business owner and lifelong resident of the Sixth District. His Lancaster Farm is the oldest farm in Smith County and one of the oldest in the state, founded in 1790. Rose’s deep roots in the area are part of his inspiration for seeking the Republican nomination for Tennessee’s Sixth Congressional District.

“I am a conservative outsider who is ready to join President Donald Trump in taking on the Washington liberals and elites for the good of my friends, family, and neighbors across the district,” Rose said.

Rose is a conservative who believes America’s immigration system is broken and will vote to build a wall along the southern border, increase patrol officers, and defund dangerous sanctuary cities. He has also pledged to work tirelessly to create and pass a plan that repeals and replaces Obamacare. Among his other areas of focus are securing Tennesseans’ Second Amendment rights and defending the lives of the unborn.

“I want to take Tennessee values to Washington,” Rose said. “This kickoff event is the perfect way to start my campaign, surrounded by friends and neighbors who embody the values America needs. I hope everyone will come out and enjoy this time of fellowship.”
