The following is a statement from Chris Burger, Press Secretary for Bill Lee for Governor re: the Knoxville Town Hall:

“When we committed to the series of televised debates several months ago, we were glad to see that all three Grand Divisions were represented and included. It is unfortunate that the East Tennessee debate in Knoxville was canceled due to other candidates dropping out of the debate. As we committed months ago – we will be in Knoxville on July 22nd.  Our campaign is holding this special Sunday evening town hall to continue to take our message to the voters and hear what’s on their mind. We’d be honored for anyone to attend.”
