Former TV reporter leads effort to rebuild TN Conservative Union

Gary Loe, chosen in February as chairman of the Tennessee Conservative Union, is working to rebuild the 40-year-old political organization after the death of founder and longtime leader Lloyd Daugherty in October of 2014, reports Georgiana Vines.

The one thing Loe said he wants to make clear about the group, since it spent quite a bit of time trying to defeat U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander when he was governor and a candidate for U.S. president in the 1990s, is that it is not a branch of the Republican Party.

 “It is not a Republican organization. The organization is proud to have conservative Republicans, Democrats and Independents,” he said in a phone interview.

Note: The TCU news release on the appointment of Loe, a businessman and former TV reporter who once ran unsuccessfully for the state House, is HERE.
