UPDATE: Rep. Bill Dunn states in the comments that he is not a member of any group of the type described below and Rep. Brian Kelsey has posted on the original article the following:
This is Rep. Brian Kelsey (R-Germantown). The statement that I am a member of any so-called "RINO Hunters" group is 100% false. Please remove my name from this posting immediately. I don’t have anything to do with this group (if it even exists) and haven’t been contacted even once by anybody who does.A group of Tennessee conservatives are reportedly getting together to pool their money in the pursuit of taking down a few moderates:
The group is attempting to find 15 founding donors good for $20,000 each for each election cycle ($10,000 annual) and other donors to achieve a $375,000 annual budget. The acting chair of the group is Steve Gill, a Nashville radio talk show host. The group also includes major Republican Party donors like Lee Beaman, A.J. McCall, Jimmy Wallace, and James Peach. Legislative members include Republican state Reps. Bill Dunn, Frank Niceley, Brian Kelsey, Donna Rowland, Glen Casada, and Bill Ketron, among others. The group has a list of 18 conservative positions having to do with opposition to a state income tax, Second Amendment protections, pro-life, traditional marriage, pro-business, repeal of the Hall Income Tax, strict border enforcement, and pro-drilling for energy independence.
