Brandon Thomas for State House 2020

I'm Brandon Thomas, and I need your help to bring real solutions to Rutherford County, and to bring more balance to our state legislature before redistricting occurs after the 2020 census.

I first ran for this seat in 2016, and managed to get almost 39% of the vote as a 26-year-old first-time candidate. The candidate who ran in 2018 received 47%, which is an unbelievable increase from one election to the next. We can flip 49 - I just need your help.

I want to make sure that all voters have their voices heard in 49, from LaVergne, to Smyrna, to Murfreesboro. But my race has major implications for the state as well. Redistricting will happen after the 2020 census, and the lawmakers who make it to the State Capitol after this election will be the ones calling the shots. House District 49 is one of our best chances to get another Democrat in Nashville to help make sure that district lines are drawn fairly.

In addition to that, I want to go to Nashville to fight for better opportunities for my neighbors. We need quality, affordable healthcare for all Tennesseans. My neighbors who commute to Nashville need to be able to make it to work on time, and that means electing a legislator who's committed to sitting down with stakeholders and finding real solutions to the traffic issues we all deal with. We also need a higher minimum wage. Republicans love to talk about our low unemployment rate, but that doesn't tell the full story. Tennesseans are having to work multiple jobs just to get by. Our neighbors are working hard, but not being paid what they're worth.

Lately, when you read the news coming out of the State Capitol, it sounds like an episode of House of Cards. I plan to stay focused on finding solutions to these real issues that I and my neighbors deal with every day.

Republicans may have the money, but we have the heart. No matter what name is on the Republican side of the ballot come November, I can guarantee we'll be up against a well-funded candidate. I know our message will resonate with voters - we just need to make sure they can hear it. I know that together, we can amplify our message and build a strong campaign that's powered by people, not corporate interests.

Please, donate today. If you can't donate, please spread the word! Together, we can win.

- Brandon
