NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 21, 2016 -- U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today made the following statement on the passing of Lee Smith, founder of The Tennessee Journal:
"For a half century, Lee Smith and his Tennessee Journal participated in Tennessee politics in a straightforward way that commanded the respect of both Democrats and Republicans. In between, he found time to be Vanderbilt’s most rabid basketball fan. He was my close friend. Honey and I will greatly miss him. We express to his family our deepest sympathy."
