Golden elected to third term as state GOP chairman

Republicans hold a unity event in Franklin following the primary election on Aug. 8, 2020.

The executive committee of the state Republican Party has unanimously elected Scott Golden to a third term as chairman.

Golden was unopposed for the party’s top leadership post at the GOP panel’s meeting in Franklin on Saturday.

“That was an absolute vote of confidence for this team, and we will not let you down,” Golden said after the vote.

Golden touted Republican electoral successes that included President Donald Trump matching his Tennessee winning percentage from four years ago, former Ambassador Bill Hagerty being elected to the U.S. Senate, and the GOP losing just one seat in the General Assembly.

Golden, a former aide to then-U.S. Reps. Marsha Blackburn and Stephen Fincher, was first elected to the job in 2016.
