Robin Kimbrough Hayes

Candidate for United States Senator for Tennessee

Robin says, “I grew up in a trailer park in Kentucky. The trailer park taught me how to stretch my resources, how to make a lot out of a little, and gave me the drive to become a lawyer and chaplain. Most importantly, it taught me that no matter what is going on, there is still hope.”
