My friend, Adam Groves of the infamous Simply I blog has an excellent post here about the Ford family and some real Republicans and a possible RINO. The reason that I enjoyed this post is the quote attributed to my good friend and Republican Chairman, Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Bob Davis. Here is the quote.
“Congressman Ford (senior) has a history of making irresponsible statements…What I do know is that every time he opens his mouth is 100 less votes for his son…What we’re going to be doing (in the campaign) is talking about the congressman’s record, but you can’t help but think about it. At the end of the day, people are going to be thinking about whether Harold Ford Jr. is like his father or (uncle and convicted tax evader) Emmitt or Ophelia.”
