Early Voting is UP. Many of the naysayers were predicting doom and gloom that Knox County was on mark for a 20,000 early vote mark. Comments were being made that political leaders were attempting to keep the vote down.
The KnoxGOP campaign can and will be credited with the strong early vote finish with nearly 25,000 people casting an informed early vote. If you haven’t voted, cast a vote for the experienced candidates. The experienced candidates can all be found on the Republican ballot. Any other ballot includes candidates that are inexperienced and not ready for prime time.
The court ruled in Deselm -v- Hutchison that term limits do not apply to Tennessee Constitutional Officeholders.
