About Gayle

Gayle Jordan is running for the District 14 seat in the Tennessee State Senate of the General Assembly of Tennessee. With strong values around the issues of Healthcare and Insure Tennessee, Education, Veterans’ Rights, Roads, and Religious Freedom, Gayle seeks the opportunity to be a voice for the residents of District 14.


Gayle wants to focus on healthcare, education, infrastructure, and Veteran’s rights. She is pro-marriage equality, pro-transgender rights, pro-choice, supports allowing refugees in American, pro-background checks for guns and making sure they stay out of the hands of those convicted of domestic violence, our schools, parks, and bars.

About the election

District 14 is about an hour outside of Nashville, Tenn. It is considered a generally conservative area, and is traditionally Republican. A special election for District 14 was called after Jim Tracy (R) resigned to take a federal appointment. Gayle ran as the Democratic challenger against Tracy in the 2016 election and lost. Since then, however, a neighboring county had a special election with one of the largest swings from GOP to Dems in the country.  Win or lose, showing that a conservative area like Tenn is shifting is an important message to the Republican Party. This is a great example of where we must work to energize Democrats everywhere, and so Democracy Action is happy to participate.
