Spring Hill, TN—The Real Conservatives National Committee, the Spring Hill, Tennessee Super PAC behind the BEAT LAMAR project, announced today that it is launching a second new project, BEAT STEVE COHEN, and is endorsing Charlotte Bergmann, the Republican nominee who is challenging Representative Cohen (D-TN) in the Ninth Congressional District general election this November.
Michael Patrick Leahy, who organized BEAT LAMAR, BEAT JIM COOPER, and now BEAT STEVE COHEN, said "Steve Cohen is an amnesty supporting Democrat who represents the interests of crony capitalists who want lower wages, and not the residents of the 9th Congressional District, who want real jobs and better wages. Steve Cohen is supposed to represent Memphis, Tennessee. Instead, he represents Washington D.C. lobbyists and Silicon Valley billionaires who want open borders. His support for those policies actively hurts the personal economic interests of every voter in the 9th Congressional District.”
"The Real Conservatives National Committee is pleased to announce our endorsement of Charlotte Bergmann, Congressman Cohen's challenger in the November general election," Leahy said.
The decision to endorse Charlotte Bergmann, the uncontested winner of the August 7th Republican Congressional primary in the 9th Congressional District, was made after Lindsay Krout, the Memphis team captain for BEAT LAMAR, vetted Ms. Bergmann in an informal but hard hitting question and answer session held last Friday…
Please Keep Your Cohen For Congress Yard Sign Up!
Thank you for your support in the Democratic Congressional Primary last week. I appreciate your support and your confidence in me and my work.
We still have a Tea Party Republican opponent in the November General Election. So I ask you for another favor: Please keep your yard sign up until after the General Election. Or if you prefer, you can put the sign in your garage until around October 1 and then get it back out.
I thank you for your ongoing support.
As always, I remain,
PS: KEEP GOIN' WITH COHEN!

How It Looked: Pics from the Campaign Season
— More Tennessee: Three House primaries to watch: In the 3rd District, Rep. Chuck Fleischmann (R) faces venture capitalist Weston Wamp (R), son of former Rep. Zach Wamp (R). In the 4th District, Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R) has been outspent by his primary opponent, state Sen. Jim Tracy (R). Tracy fell short of beating DesJarlais in 2010. And in the 9th District, Rep. Steve Cohen (D) faces pastor Isaac Richmond (D) in a race that hasn't had anywhere near the racial undertones that have marked previous challenges to Cohen.
The deceptive campaign tactics include:;
•A television spot that has aired on at least one station that falsely implies that it is an endorsement of Ricky Wilkins by the Democratic National Committee
•Signs placed in various locations around town that falsely imply the endorsement of Ricky Wilkins by the Democratic National Committee and President Barack Obama
•A ballot that candidates, including Ricky Wilkins, pay to have their name on that Williams’ poll workers pretend is an official Democratic Party endorsement list
Congressman Cohen will discuss the ongoing effort to combat the deceptive practices carried out on behalf of the Ricky Wilkins campaign.
