Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), the first Jewish congressman ever elected in Tennessee, will be running in a fundamentally new 9th Congressional District this year without a strong base of support from the Jewish community in Memphis.

Cohen Statement on President Obama's Visit to Tennessee
[WASHINGTON, DC] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) supports President Obama’s intention to expand access to higher education, which the President plans to announce in Tennessee today.  Congressman Cohen is pleased that many aspects of the President’s plan are similar to the Tennessee HOPE Education Lottery scholarship program that Congressman Cohen, as a Tennessee State Senator, led the 2-decade fight to create.  The Tennessee Education Lottery has provided more than $3 billion in education funding to Tennessee students.  However, Congressman Cohen has expressed his concerns that the President will today highlight the new Tennessee Promise program. Footage of Congressman Cohen speaking on the House floor this morning about the President’s visit to Tennessee is available here, and columns penned by the Congressman about the flaws of Tennessee Promise are available here and here.
