Retired military veteran seeks Corker's US Senate seat

Tommy N. Hay is seeking the U.S. Senate seat to be vacated by Bob Corker. Hay announced his write-in saying "Unjust actions were taken by the Tennessee Republican Party in April, so my name will not appear on the ballot." His name can be written in as a Republican candidate. Hay was certified by the Tennessee Election Commission to be a write-in candidate on May 10, 2018.

Hay is a retired military veteran with over 28 years service to include 2 1/2 years in Vietnam. He is a 1968 graduate of Shelbyville Central High School, attended numerous courses at Austin Peay University and holds a real estate license currently in the retired status. He has also completed numerous real estate courses. He has extensive training in the military fields of administration, logistics and transportation, as well as numerous other areas. Hay has many immediate family members that have served in the military. His dad served in WW11 in France, his son has over 20 years service and served in Afghanistan and still on active duty, his son-in-law is retired with over 22 years service and served in desert storm, Iraq and Afghanistan with the 82nd airborne. Both his daughter and daughter-in-law served a tour in the army. His oldest grandson joined after high school graduation and has over 2 years service. Tommy also served as a civilian contractor during Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom supporting the troops.

Hay says he is not a politician and doesn't want to be called one. He is a true believer in the U.S.A. republic and believes that the 10 commandments need to be displayed in every school and federal building. He says he will fight for the traditional American marriage, to overturn the liberal Supreme Court ruling, bring back the "don't ask, don't tell," greater senior citizens and veterans benefits, preserve the social security savings program, a strong military and many other crucial issues. He adds that he will support building the wall and getting out of the UN.

Hay lives in Monterey. For more information, visit
