Bill Lee, the newly inaugurated Governor of Tennessee, is a model for both the GOP and broader politics in America. Just 30 days before election day he was polling behind by double digits. His opponents slung mud and tried to smear him. “This campaign’s starting to feel like a race to the bottom,” he stated in one ad. But Lee didn’t give in. Bucking the Trump-led trends of bickering and pettiness, Lee strove for nobility, honesty, and character. May we see more campaigns of the same integrity in the elections ahead.
