From a press release:

Nashville, Tenn — Indivisible, Women’s March-Power Together TN, and other partner organizations in collaboration with the  #EnoughisEnough Tennessee PAC will attempt to unseat Representative David Byrd (R) in the 2018 election cycle as he stands accused of sexual misconduct by three former high school basketball players whom he coached at Wayne County High School. 

Indivisible, along with Rep. Sherry Jones and one of David Byrd’s accusers will hold a press conference beginning at 1:00 PM Thursday, and a canvass into Rep. Byrd’s district on October 13th to increase local awareness about the campaign. Participating organizations seek to draw a line from the allegations of misconduct at the highest offices with Brett Kavanaugh to the re-election of David Byrd.

WHEN: Thursday, September 27th at 1:00 PM

WHERE: Tennessee Capitol Steps

WHAT: Tennessee women’s and progressive organizations and leaders in the Enough is Enough Tennessee PAC seek to help Tennessee bring closure to the young girls who were victimized by David Byrd by ensuring the public in his district and throughout Tennessee understand the allegations against him and see to it that he no longer serves as a legislator in this state.
