Black campaign blasts Boyd for ‘moderate record;’ Boyd recalls Reagan’s ’11th commandment’

News release from Diane Black campaign

Today, Randy Boyd completes his “B-Roll Run” across Tennessee. But he’ll have to keep running if he wants to get away from his moderate record of opposing Donald Trump, supporting illegal immigration, supporting common core and supporting Democrats.

  • Randy Boyd said supporting Donald Trump would be “anathema” to him.
  • Randy Boyd made the largest donation in history ($250,000) to Conexion Americas, a group associated with La Raza, whose co-founder helped organize the anti-Trump #INDIVISIBLE campaign.
  • Randy Boyd is a “staunch supporter” of common core.
  • Randy Boyd donated $3,800 to a Democratic candidate for the state Supreme Court.
  • Randy Boyd was appointed by Barack Obama to an education board that worked to provide free community college to illegal immigrants.

If you’re covering the completion of Randy Boyd’s “B-Roll Run,” please use the following quote from Diane Black for Governor spokesman Chris Hartline:

“With a conservative record almost as short as his shorts, it’s no surprise Randy Boyd is trying to run from his record. With his biggest supporter, Jeb!, coming to town, Randy! is trying to hide his moderate record of opposing Trump, supporting illegal immigration, supporting Common Core and supporting Democrats. He’ll have to run further West than Memphis to hide the truth from Tennesseans.”

Note: No response, yet, from the Boyd camp. But the Black release comes on the same day that Politico has a blurb in a roundup of political notes quoting Boyd’s reply to a question on whether President Donald Trump or Sen. Bob Corker is doing the best job for Tennessee:

 “I don’t know the answer to that. I will make this comment. I wish that Howard Baker or Ronald Reagan were still around. I mean remember Ronald Reagan had something called the 11th Commandment and the 11th Commandment was I say no evil to Republicans,” Boyd said, going on to say “For me, I’m going to be just focused on Tennessee.”
