Not Dead Yet

In the story referenced below, Brosnan also talks to Senator Bill Frist, and we learn that Frist may be grooming Ed Bryant, loser to Lamar! in the Republican US Senate primary, for his replacement! Brosnan calls Bryants 43% showing "credible."

Bryant ran well in West Tennessee, but because he lacked the time and
money to become better known in Alexander's East Tennessee base,
Bryant tried to attack Alexander's tax record as governor. Alexander
pollster Whit Ayres believes that backfired. "Bryant came into East
Tennessee slamming the local hero as a bad governor at precisely the
time people were wishing he was still governor," Ayres said.
Fascinating. Can someone from East Tennessee back this up?

Until next time, that is all.
