Dark money group goes after GOP House member for opposition to Tennessee school voucher plan

Published by

The Tennessee affiliate of the American Federation for Children (AFC) sent a targeted text message last week attacking Rep. Todd Warner, R-Chapel Hill, for opposing vouchers. The advertisements call out Warner for “siding with the radical Tennessee 3 against Tennessee parents” and for what AFC sees as opposition to “parental rights,” limiting health benefits for teachers and blocking millions in funding for local schools. The AFC’s text message never mentioned the word voucher but the broad term “school choice.” Instead, it ties Warner’s opposition to the bill to also opposing the legislation’s incentives for public schools and teachers.
