  •  TN-Sen: Alexander gets Tea Party challenger (8+ / 0-)

    State Rep. Joe Carr (R) has announced he'll primary Sen. Lamar Alexander (R).  And Carr's website promptly misspelled the seat he's running for as the U.S. Sentate.  LOL.

    What's more interesting is this nugget:

    Soon after the announcement, Carr’s top campaign aide, Chip Saltsman, handed in his resignation and said he would join Alexander’s re-election campaign. “It is because of Lamar Alexander that people like you have the honor of serving in the majority of the state legislature,” Saltsman wrote in his resignation letter. ”It is because of Lamar Alexander that our children and grandchildren go to better schools, and are able to compete for better jobs. It is because of Lamar Alexander that we live in a state people want to move to, start a family in, start a business in, and even retire to. I am honored to support Lamar Alexander for re-election.”
    Damn, that is some burn.  And Saltsman isn't just some no-name aide.  He was the former chair of the Tennessee GOP, was a senior advisor to Bill First, and managed Mike Huckabee's 2008 presidential campaign.
