OK

Look, I got re-elected by a wide margin so whoever this Amos Powers guy is, let me tell you this: I'm not campaigning or worrying because in 2012 I got re-elected by more than 70% and no Democratic challenger went after me then!  I'll be ok, I really believe so.
Rep. Diane Black isn't exactly an ideal target for the Democratic Party.  Her district, per Cook Political Report, has a PVI of R+21 and she first elected 2010 with 69.6% of the votes, taking over Rep. Bart Gordon who chose not to run for re-election in 2010.  In 2012, Black won re-election by an even wider margin by 76.4% and didn't face a single Democratic challenger.  Therefore, the odds aren't in the Democratic Party's favor at this point.

On the other hand, in 2014 there is a Democratic Candidate running named Amos Powers and he's still very much in the race to elect the next representative in Tennessee's 6th Congressional District.

For any of you who live in TN-06 or nearby, on February 4th, Amos Powers will be at a Meet and Greet event in Sparta, TN at 6 pm.  Full details of the event below:
