Lamar! and Baby Lamar! are both members in good standing of the establishment club. Sadly, Tennessee voters are well-trained.
Alexander arrived late to cast the 68th vote for Schumer. They already had well over 60 votes. Was he trying to rub it in, or just making sure he got his reward?
TN got it right once, when they voted against Lamar! in 1974, but instead they chose a really bad man for governor who I believe had serious legal matters.
