Statement of Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) Republican Caucus Whip Race

Posted on November 15, 2006

"Senators, like most Americans do, like comebacks. Senator Lott has conclusively proven he’s a better vote counter than I am. While I would have enjoyed serving the caucus as whip, this gives me the independence to devote all of my time to serving Tennesseans and focusing on the issues I care the most about: education, energy, job creation and the environment.”
