Bill Hagerty on Principles & Values



America, greatest country, at risk from radical Left

We are fortunate to live in America - the greatest country in the world, and we Americans shouldn't shy away from that. However, the radical Left's constant call for socialist policies demonstrate that they are trying to deconstruct the very essence and tear apart the very fabric that makes America so great - the American Dream. Our country was founded on the principles of freedom and liberty. America is a beacon of hope across the globe.

Must stand up to radical liberals and their socialist agenda

Hagerty said, "Serving in President Trump's administration was the honor of a lifetime, but when I saw the threat to Tennessee and to our county from the Democratic Socialists' agenda, I felt called to act. We must stand up to radical liberals, like the Squad and their socialist agenda that would deeply damage the America we know and love. Their aim is to deliver more government, more crippling debt and less freedom for my children and yours."

Certify 2020 Presidential election as fully & fairly counted.

Hagerty voted NAY blocking certification of the Electoral vote

Explanation of 1/6/21 Electoral Certification, by Emily Brooks, Washington Examiner:Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Paul Gosar led an objection to counting Electoral College votes from the state of Arizona, the first formal objection to state results in a series of moves that will delay the certification of Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election over President Trump. Cruz is advocating for an `emergency 10-day audit` of election returns in disputed states. The usually ceremonial joint session of Congress that convenes to count and accept Electoral College votes will be put on hold as the House and Senate separately debate the objection.
