Every voter always has key issues that are most important to them. They might weigh the stances of political candidates on a wide variety of issues, but usually make their final decisions based upon the issue most important in their life.

For hunters, fishermen and others who care most about our environment and the outdoors, conservation is a top-of-mind issue.

Recently the Tennessee Wildlife Federation, one of the largest and oldest private organizations in Tennessee dedicated to conservation of the state’s wildlife and natural resources, posed a series of questions to the Republican and Democratic candidates for governor in the Volunteer State.

Questions were submitted by TWF members and other interested parties. TWF asks, “Before you head to the ballot box, read candidates Dean and Lee’s answers and learn how they plan to protect Tennessee’s great outdoors if elected governor. Then, vote. Remember, conservation depends on you.”
