The moderate and liberal Republicans, have not been wanting to support Marsha Blackburn. A certain former Mayor of Knoxville that writes an article says that Knoxville Republicans support Phil Bredesen. While he (the former Mayor) may support Bredesen, don’t buy what he is smoking. Yesterday at Cherokee Country Club a lunch was held to raise some dollars for Team Marsha.
The host list was Bob and Amy Cross, Tony Hollin,Teddy Phillips, Jr., Mike and Allison Ragsdale, Wes Stowers, Charles and Nancy Wagner, and Tim Williams. Those in attendance were; Bill Angelos, Mike Arms, Joe Bailey, Rick Chinn, Joe Connell, Mike Connor, John Faris, Hash Hashemian, Andy Johnson, Sam Mishu, Rich Ray, Bill Schaff, Rob and Beth Strickland, John Turney and Steve West.
In addition to Blackburn in the August 2, 2018 Republican Primary is Dr. Rolando Toyos.
At last night’s Knox County Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner, former two term Republican Tennessee Governor Don Sundquist, who defeated Bredesen in 1994 talked about Bredesen. Here is some of those remarks.
