Republican 6th Congressional District candidate John Rose won with a whopping 70% in a straw poll conducted at the Upper Cumberland Reagan Day Dinner. The win is another sign that momentum is building behind Rose, a conservative Republican and lifelong resident of the 6th District. “Our campaign is building a grassroots coalition of conservatives across the district
and this win is another sign that we are primed for success in August and November,” Rose said.

The Upper Cumberland Reagan Day Dinner consisted of Republicans from Clay, Fentress, Jackson, Macon, Overton, Pickett, and Putnam counties. The dinner was a sell-out event. A total of 164 votes were cast for a candidate in the race for the 6th Congressional District. Rose captured 119 of those votes. The closest candidate to Rose was State Representative Judd Matheny who received 24 votes.

Rose is a conservative Republican, small business owner, farmer, staunch supporter of the 2nd amendment, and 100% pro-life. He is an eighth generation Tennessean who has spent his life in the district working to improve and contribute to his community. Rose is seeking the Republican nomination for Tennessee’s 6th Congressional District, a seat left open by Diane Black who is running for Governor.
