So who was at that Pence luncheon at the governor’s mansion?

With no press invited or informed about Gov. Bill Lee’s hosting of former Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to the governor’s mansion in Nashville, we’re left to our own devices to try to figure out who attended. Helpfully, Pence posted a photo of the luncheon on Twitter.

Here’s who we think we’ve identified from the photo:

  • Gov. Bill Lee
  • First lady Maria Lee
  • Construction contractor Turney Talley
  • Finance Commissioner Butch Eley
  • Tennessee Titans President Burke Nihill
  • Former Vice President Mike Pence
  • Philanthropist Scott Niswonger
  • Nancy Dishner of the Niswonger Foundation 
  • Adam Lister of Tennesseans for Student Success
  • House Speaker Cameron Sexton
  • Developer Steve Smith
  • Political consultant Chip Saltsman
  • Advance Financial lobbyist Cullen Earnest
  • Construction contractor Steve Kirby
  • Former Gov. Bill Haslam
  • Karen Pence, wife of Mike Pence.
  • Construction contractor Cal Turner
