Tennessee’s two Democratic representatives voted with the majority in favor of impeaching the president for inciting an insurrection. Not a single Tennessee Republican voted in favor of the measure.
Nashville Democrat Jim Cooper voted against new restrictions on the National Security Agency’s collection of phone records and other sensitive data. It’s a vote that puts him at odds with every other member of Tennessee’s congressional delegation.
Nashville’s Jim Cooper was the only Democratic congressman to vote against $51 billion in aid for the states affected by Hurricane Sandy. Cooper says he couldn’t support the bill, because it would add to federal spending at a time when the country is about to hit the debt ceiling.
