Beavers’ PAC changes name, from Liberty to Freedom

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — State Sen. Mae Beavers’ political action committee has corrected its registration filing with the Tennessee Registry of Election Finance in advance of a major fundraiser next week.

The Mt. Juliet Republican said in a phone interview that the Freedom PAC had inadvertently been registered as the Liberty PAC. The registry confirmed Wednesday that the name has now been changed to match invitations to the group’s Oct. 3 event in Lebanon.

The $50-per-ticket fundraiser features John Harris, the president of the Tennessee Firearms Association, and health care investor Andy Miller, who spent more than $180,000 to support Lou Ann Zelenik’s failed effort to oust U.S. Rep. Diane Black in the Republican primary last year.

Beavers said the event is close to selling out its 300-seat capacity.
