Tonight Jesse Nelson had his campaign kick off tonight at Calhoun’s on Kingston Pike. With over 100 people attending he is up and running a strong fight for the seat currently held by Representative Roger Kane who is running for Knox County Court Clerk.
The people who where there were not your typical political groupies. There were many families, many business men and woman and lots and lots of support. He’s running on a fresh voice for his district and to improve some things in Nashville and he’s ready to face them head on. He spent a good chunk of his speech asking for help and asking for each and everyone’s vote. It wasn’t a speech that a campaign team came up with, but a speech that seemed heartfelt and confident that he is ready to serve the people of the district.
