Rep. Joe Carr, the conservative from Middle Tennessee challenging Lamar Alexander, has gotten some huge boosts recently w/ endorsements from Laura Ingraham and Sarah Palin. Following his Palin endorsement, Carr appeared on the Glenn Beck program.

The venerable conservative pundit Bill Hobbes weighed in last week and argued that Carr has forged a very real and possible path to victory that could shock the Tennessee political scene. Hobbes argued Carr could win in shocking fashion similar to how Bill Frist defeated longtime Democrat Jim Sasser in 1994. No one saw an upset coming, and Frist annihilated Sasser by 14 points (56-42) and became the only challenger to defeat a full-term incumbent that cycle.

According to their leader, Michael Patrick Leahy, they’ve knocked on over 50,000 doors asking voters to support Carr.

Carr appeared on the Glenn Beck program.

Is Glenn Beck a snake oil salesman? Huckster?

Tennessee is an OPEN primary State. The GOPe will insure that Lamar Alexander wins using the same tactics they used in Mississippi.
