Aside from the Wicked Witch of Congress (aka Michelle Bachmann), Renee Ellmers Fudd, Diane Black (no relationship to the late actress Karen Black) and Kristi Noem (last name not to be confused with Gnome), Rep. Marsha Blackburn is certainly one to be reckoned with as far as being challenged for re-election. Her district is rated by Cook Political Report with a PVI of R+18 and since representing Tennessee's 7th Congressional District since 2003, she's basically coasted to re-election ever since without a scratch while being a chicken hawk and rubber stamping President Bush's Iraq War.
However, 2012 Democratic Challenger to Marsha Blackburn (yes, she had one), Credo Amouzouvik is making another run for Congress in TN-07 undeterred by Blackburn's "stature." This time, he joins fellow Democrat Dan Cramer, who as it turns out, is a Iraq War Veteran like Amouzouvik.
Tuesday, March 25th in Clarksville, TN, Amouzouvik will be holding a town hall meeting for any of you living in or nearby TN-07 who want a chance to ask questions. Information on event is as follows:
CREDO WANTS TO HEAR FROM YOU!!

Here's a recent interview we had with Credo Amouzouvik:
Here's some background about him:
Credo Amouzouvik is a combat-wounded war veteran, who is medically retired. Born in the west African nation of Togo, Credo is a naturalized US Citizen, and a committed member of the Democratic party whose platform is focused on education, jobs, energy, and infrastructure.If you want to get involved in Credo Amouzouvik's campaign for Congress, links are below:
Amouzouviks journey on the path towards citizenship began after the horrific attacks of September 11th, 2001 when was inspired to help America in her time of need. He enlisted in the US Army, and was wounded by an Improvised Explosive Device while on deployment to Iraq. Enduring multiple surgeries and a long recovery process, he has since recovered fully.
His dedicated service to our nation earned him citizenship, and that drive to public service has continued to guide him ever since. Amouzouvik continued giving back to those in need founding the Homeffa foundation, a group that provided direct humanitarian aid in Haiti after the devastating earthquake that rocked that country in 2010, and here at home with recovery efforts after the Great Flood of 2010 which inundated scores of homes and businesses bordering the Cumberland River.
