The Commercial Appeal has endorsed Congressman Steve Cohen for re-election in Tennessee’s 9th Congressional District.
As early voting proceeds toward Election Day on Nov. 8, The Commercial Appeal is making recommendations on three races on the ballot.
U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen is seeking a sixth term as the congressional representative for Tennessee’s Ninth Congressional District. He is being challenged by Republican Floyd Wayne Alberson, who challenged Cohen as an independent candidate in 2014.
Cohen merits another term. He has used his tenure in Washington to effectively advocate, sometimes with bipartisan support, for issues that impact just about every segment of the district from neighborhood redevelopment, education, small-business growth, quality of life amenities, criminal justice reform and legislation to improve the lives district’s less fortunate residents.
Memphis does not need to lose that kind of experience in Washington.
