Lee: Policy priorities, cabinet selections coming soon

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A day after securing enough votes to become Tennessee’s next governor, Republican Bill Lee says he will soon reveal his top policy proposals and cabinet selections as he transitions into the office.

The governor-elect had previously held off answering questions on direct policy positions along the campaign trail, arguing he had an election to win first before diving into specifics.

On Wednesday, Lee joined term-limited Gov. Bill Haslam in the Tennessee Capitol to celebrate his win, as well as announce he’s taking a little time before giving an outline of what the businessman’s agenda will look like in the upcoming months.

Lee won Tuesday’s election against former Democratic Nashville Mayor Karl Dean by a nearly 20-point margin.

It was the first time Lee had ever run for political office.
