Primary battles in Tennessee tend to be very heated affairs. This is not entirely due to the fact that Tennessee holds its primaries in the first week of August as the temperature and humidity sail north of 90 degrees in many parts of the state.
While Tennessees primary is late compared to many others, what is really surprising is that no one is talking about the Senate primary....
Alexander has amazing, if not almost universal, name recognition throughout Tennessee.
Yet he could be the senator the tea party knocks off this year.

I’m voting for CARR. Kick Lamar out of office.
Carr has my vote in the coming primary.
I’m supporting Carr.
I will not vote for Ole’ Red Shirt. I had already had way too much of his voting to confirm anti-American, far-left judges. And then he voted for the Rubio-Schumer amnesty disaster. If Alexander wins the primary, I will not vote for him; my gag reflex is too low for that.
Lamar SHOULD be in trouble for the votes he cast and his mealy mouth ways but relying on the weather(if I understand the article) to get a candidate through the gates is inept.
I’m voting Carr but I expect my lazy, low information fellow Tennessean voters to pull the lever for “flannel boy” again....
“In the poll, 27 percent of likely Republican voters said they were undecided.”
That 27% will not show up to vote ni the heat of August.
“Tea Party Nation and Triton polling conducted a survey of likely Republican voters in Tennessee”
Very bias source for the poll and the article fails to mention that there are NINE candidates on the Republican primary ballot. So 9% of them are supporting someone else.
A February poll by a reputable polling firm shows Alxander at 62% in February.
I don’t think Lamar is going to have much problem in either the primary or the general election.
