The so-called Democratic blue wave was supposed to include US Representative Harold Ford Jr. becoming the new Democratic state Senator of TN. That does not look like it will happen. Personally, no matter what early polls stated, I did not think TN would elect Ford because of the Ford family political baggage and Harold Ford Jr was hardly what he was stating he was in the media. Operation Tennessee Waltz is not soon forgotten by the TN voters.
The latest from trusted pollster Scott Rasmussen, Corker 53 Harold Ford Jr. 45
Harold Ford Jr. tough on terrorism??? Tennessee likes people who mean what they say, not what is politically expedient.
What has been most interesting is TN turned on Harold Ford Jr. when he pulled the now famous Memphis meltdown blunder. Tennesseans do not like when you try to pull these types of stunts, ITS BAD FORM. That may be the “inside the belt-way” way to do things, its not how Tennessee does it.
The Tennessee Senate seat will remain Repbublican.
Its funny how a Democrat who votes along party line suddenly becomes one of the South’s “favorite sons” when it comes time for an election.
