Education and poverty are my number one and number two issues for the City of Memphis and Shelby County, stated Harris. He continued to highlight his track record of most bills passed by a Democrat in Tennessee's past session, most of which were co-sponsored by Republicans. Harris addressed his opposition and stated he wants to make the race, ultimately, represent the interests of the people on the ground.

Senator Harris noted the challenges posed by is Republican opposition who announced their candidacy much earlier and have been campaigning for several months.
