Established in 1977, The Tennessee Conservative Union is the state’s oldest and largest conservative organization.

Since its inception in 1977, the Tennessee Conservative Union has been a non-partisan voice for the conservative viewpoint in Tennessee. With over 12,000 members, its success is largely due to the leadership of the late Chairmen Lloyd Daugherty and Alice Algood. The TCU has fought to keep government small and out of the taxpayer's pockets. Their "Ax the Tax" campaign was successful in defeating the proposed state income tax.

The Tennessee Conservative Union is made up of thousands of Tennesseans who are tired of big government. The TCU represents their views in Nashville as well as Washington.

The Tennessee Conservative Union is the South’s oldest and largest Conservative Organization and has been the main opposition to a 
Tennessee state income tax since 1982
