Sen. Bill Hagerty

Senator for Tennessee

Hagerty is the junior senator from Tennessee and is a Republican. He has served since Jan 3, 2021. Hagerty is next up for reelection in 2026 and serves until Jan 3, 2027.

Hagerty is among the Republican legislators who, by calling for entire states to be disenfranchised in the 2020 presidential election, fomented the terrorist attack on the Capitol on January 6, 2021 that aimed to prevent the determination of the next president of the United States. In the days leading up to January 6, Hagerty had announced his intent to object on that day to the inclusion of some states in the count of electors that determines the next president, disenfranchising millions of voters based on lies, conspiracy theories, and preposterous legal theories all falsely claiming various sorts of mass fraud that did not occur. The announcement amplified the message that inspired the attack on the Capitol.
