Jobs & The Economy

Under Senator Campfield's watch, we've lowered unemployment here in Tennessee by 2%, from 8.4% to 6.4%, in the past year alone, and we are the #3 Best State For Business.

In January of 2010 when Senator Campfield joined the state senate, Tennessee's unemployment rate was at 10.6%. Over his term, the business and economic policies he has championed have lowered our state's unemployment rate by 4.2%. What that means in real terms is that with Senator Campfield's policies, more of our fellow Tennesseans have jobs and are able to provide food and a future for their families.
