NASHVILLE, TN – Lamar Alexander’s re-election campaign today announced the launch of a statewide radio ad touting Senator Alexander’s opposition to Obamacare.

The ad begins, “Senator Lamar Alexander has voted 23 times to get rid of Obamacare” and showcases 
the Senator’s leadership in fighting Obamacare.

Alexander’s debate with President Obama at the White House Health Care Summit is highlighted in the spot.  The two spar over Alexander’s statement that the president’s plan would lead to more expensive health insurance premiums for individuals.  Later, both the president and Fox News affirmed that Lamar was right, and the president was wrong, about the true costs of Obamacare. 

The 60-second radio ad airs statewide beginning August 23.

The radio ad is complemented by the campaign’s recent release of a web video featuring Rutherford County business owner Shane Reeves discussing how Lamar is standing up for Tennesseans against Obamacare.

The Alexander campaign is chaired by Congressman Jimmy Duncan with co-chairmen Governor Bill Haslam, U.S. Senator Bob Corker, Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, Speaker Beth Harwell as well as Congressmen Blackburn, Roe, Black, Fincher and Fleischmann.

The campaign’s Honorary Co-Chairmen include former U.S. Senators Howard Baker, Bill Brock, Bill Frist and Fred Thompson as well as former Governors Winfield Dunn and Don Sundquist.

Serving as Honorary Co-Chairs of the Statewide Committee to Elect Lamar Alexander are all 13 living former state Republican Party chairs.


Lamar Alexander seeks re-election to the U.S. Senate to continue to stand up for Tennesseans. His priorities are to fix the debt by restraining out-of-control spending on entitlements, to move more decisions out of Washington and back to states and communities where they belong, to help the Republican Party ignite the American Dream for millions who have lost confidence in our free enterprise system, and to transfer more of Tennessee’s common sense values to Washington D.C.
