When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Or at least that is what the Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate are saying. The Memphis Commercial Appeal released an article today discussing how Bob Tuke, Mike Padgett, and Kenneth Eaton are not giving up the possibility of upsetting Lamar Alexander in this year’s U.S. Senate race.
“Nevertheless, two of the likely front-runners — former state Democratic Party chairman Bob Tuke and former Knox County clerk Mike Padgett — have been making the rounds across Tennessee.
Both have detailed, carefully thought-out campaign platforms. And both speak confidently of their ability to pull off a November surprise.
For that matter, so does Nashville businessman Kenneth Eaton, probably the third leading contender in the race.”
