The American Federation for Children, the nation’s voice for educational choice, congratulates Greg Vital on his victory in the special election for House District 29. Tonight, voters showed their overwhelming support of school choice by electing Greg Vital with 80% of the vote.

“The Tennessee Federation for Children PAC was proud to endorse Greg because of his commitment to Tennessee families having access to the best educational options our state has to offer.
