Fitzhugh buys Titans tickets in response to Black boycott

Press release from Craig Fitzhugh campaign

House Democratic Leader and candidate for Governor, Craig Fitzhugh has bought Tennessee Titans Season Tickets after Republican candidate for Governor Diane Black returned hers because of her unwillingness to support several Titans’ players right to free speech.

According to the Nashville Tennessean, The Republican congresswoman and candidate for governor says she and her husband Dave have canceled their season tickets because of the national anthem protests by some players last season.  After reading that, Leader Fitzhugh then promptly acquired season tickets himself to support his home state team.

Craig Fitzhugh stated, “Being the only candidate for Governor in either political party to serve in the military doesn’t make me more patriotic. I choose to stand when I hear the National Anthem played anywhere, on TV, by an ice cream truck, or at a Titans game.  I’m making a statement when I stand and others choose to make a statement by not standing. America is great because the Constitution protects both statements and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
