Laura Ingraham Comes to Nashville, TN to Support Joe Carr for US Senate … Beat Lamar Rally … Retire Lamar, Vote for Joe Carr!!!
Laura Ingraham rocks the Millennium Maxwell House.
Conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham came to Nashville, Tennessee in support of Joe Carr in his efforts to defeat establishment GOP US Senator Lamar Alexander in the upcoming Republican primary. At the “Beat Lamar Rally” Ingraham held nothing back and blasted the out of touch incumbent Alexander as a senator who has lost touch with Tennessee in front of a crowd between 600 and 700 people. Laura Ingraham stated out with the old and in with the new as she compared Alexander to an old sweater. Ingraham looks to do for Carr what she did for Tea Party challenger David Brat in his shocking primary victory over Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia.
TENNESSEE … ITS TIME TO TEACH ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS AND THE GOP PARTY A LESSON THAT WILL NOT SOON FORGET!!!
In a speech that seemed to tap into the audience’s deep-seated concerns over immigration and the pace of change in the country, Ingraham spoke for 45 minutes to a packed house at the Millennium Maxwell House Hotel that attended a “Beat Lamar” rally for Carr.
Comparing U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander to an old sweater, a hooked fish, beige wallpaper and a baseball player who has struck out, Ingraham urged listeners to believe Carr, a three-term state representative from Lascassas, can upset the incumbent senator in the Aug. 7 Republican primary.
She said Alexander has failed to stand up to liberals and Democrats, whom she said were more concerned with reshaping America than standing up for their interests.
“I’m here to tell you that he still is not hearing you,” she said.
“I say this, and I mean it: Lamar Alexander, he’s probably not an evil guy, he probably doesn’t hate the Tea Party, I don’t think he knows the Tea Party, I don’t think that’s what he’s about, I really don’t,” she said.
On amnesty, she explained, Alexander was wrong on the number one issue in the country, citing the recent Gallup poll showing that the issue was at the top of voters’ concerns. She criticized Alexander for supporting the Senate “Gang of Eight” immigration bill, working with Senate Democrats like Sens. Chuck Schumer (NY) and Dick Durbin (IL).
“What planet are you living on, are you that naive, that tired, or are you that bought off?” she asked, as the delighted crowd applauded.
Ingraham noted that the modern left was filled with “utter distain” for conservatives and their values, and said today’s Democrats weren’t the moderate Democrats of Alexander’s era.
“They think you are more dangerous any day of the week than ISIS or Al-Qaeda,” she said as the crowd booed.
Ingraham encouraged all voters in Tennessee to work hard for Carr in the remaining days of the election to send a loud message to the Washington establishment.
“We have to grab the establishment by the lapels and say very forcefully — No. You. Won’t,” she said.

JUST ONE MORE REASON TO VOTE FOR TENNESSEE STATE CONGRESSMAN JOE CARR IN THE 2014 GOP TENNESSEE SENATE PRIMARY!!!
Tennessee: State Rep. Joe Carr Announces Tea Party Primary Challenge to Republican Incumbent Sen. Lamar Alexander
Hey Tennessee … Its time you have Representation that reflects the views of your state, not a RINO.
Tennessee State Representative Joe Carr has announced that he is going to primary challenge Republican incumbent US Senator Lamar Alexander next year. Carr announced his primary challenge to Alexander on Ralph Bristol’s conservative talk show on 99.7 WTN. Carr was running against the embattled U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais for the GOP nomination in the state’s 4th congressional district; however, has decided to shift his focus to defeating moderate and “the most liberal” member of the Tennessee Republican delegation. It was anticipated that some one would challenge Alexander as the 73 year old Alexander’s views hardly reflect the Republican “red” Volunteer state these days. As reported at News Channel 5, Carr, of Lascassas, said “He’s [Alexander]getting into the race because Alexander is “too liberal” for Tennessee”.
Tennessee State Rep. Joe Carr
State Rep. Joe Carr announced today he will challenge U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander in next year’s Republican primary.
In his announcement on Ralph Bristol’s conservative talk show on 99.7 WTN, Carr called Alexander “the most liberal” member of the state’s Republican delegation.
Insiders had anticipated a tea party candidate would challenge the 73-year-old Alexander, who has become a target of those from the far right.
So who will the current conservative politicians in Tennessee support? Many of them pander to the Tea Party, well its time to put up or shut up. And that means you US Rep. Marsha Blackburn. A vote for Joe Carr and his primary challenge to Lamar Alexander would show a clear message to the establishment Republicans who seem more concerned with maintaining power than they do acting like Republicans with GOP principles. He has my vote.
