The radio host says she's for Carr:
Nationally syndicated conservative talk radio show host Laura Ingraham today announced that she was "all in for Joe Carr" in his campaign to defeat Tennessee incumbent Senator Lamar Alexander.
Lamar Alexander, the August primary is coming up, Joe Carr is his challenger. Im all in for Joe Carr," Ingraham said on her show today. "I think hes, look, hes no nonsense, a citizen legislator hell be and hell be someone who will actually listen to the people, politicians at some point do have to listen to the concerns of the people, not just the concerns of one or two, big, fat, interest groups like either LaRaza or the Chamber of Commerce, the people still count, dont they Lamar?"
"Laura Ingraham was one of the very first national voices who felt that our campaign against Lamar Alexander's brazen support of amnesty was credible and viable," said TN State Rep. and U.S. Senate candidate Joe Carr. "After seeing the significant impact Laura had on the Dave Brat-Eric Cantor race, we believe this can be a game-changing moment in this campaign."
Just last week, the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, led by Jenny Beth Martin, announced their support of Carr saying, While Joe Carr has been a genuine leader - not just a reliable vote - in the fight against illegal immigration, Lamar Alexander voted with Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid and John McCain for the Gang of Eight amnesty bill. Joe wants to preserve American sovereignty; Lamar Alexanders policies are producing a human wave of criminality and disease on the Rio Grande.

Good for Laura, but then there are the people of TN who are pre-committed to Lamar!
Is there any reason the NRSC can’t do for Alexander what they did for Cochran in MS?
To be sure, there are plenty of those people who will back Lamar no matter what (kinda like Obama backers after almost two full disastrous terms), but I’m not one of them. He absolutely has to go, and I’m hoping Carr is the man to send him packing.
Please tell me TN isn't like MS and we won't have the same fackta carnival we saw their, with the same cast of characters, the RSRC, H. Barbour, Rove, Pribeus etc etc etc.....
The same people who came on board for Dave Brat, when he defeated Eric Cantor, are all coming on board for Carr.
