NASHVILLE, Tenn.--A resolution filed in the Tennessee General Assembly looks to honor conservative commentator Candace Owens on relocating to the state.
HJR350 is sponsored by State Representative William Lamberth (R-Portland-D44). A vocal supporter of former President Donald J. Trump, the resolution commends Owens for earning the "admiration and respect of millions of Americans through her activism in support of President Trump as a black woman and her perceptive criticism of creeping socialism and leftist political tyranny."
Rep. Lamberth's resolution also touts Tennessee as a place for "intelligent conservatives," citing statements made by Owens on why she chose Tennessee. According to the resolution, when asked why so many conservative media outlets and people are moving to the state, Owens said it was because "they're being chased out. The policies of New York and Los Angeles are no longer desirable. It's not a place to raise a family...I think I read the other day that the top two states that people are running to are Texas and Tennessee....I'm a Nashville resident and that just feels amazing to say."
Owens will join other conservative voices such as Tomi Lahren and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee who films his Huckabee show in Sumner County. Owens recently launched her show "Candace" from Nashville.
