Tennessee Dem says no thanks to State House run
Ardmore, Tn/Al. native Andy Whitt who is the vice president of First National Bank in Pulaski, Tn. sent out word today that he would not be running in the special election to replace former Alabama State Rep Sue Schmitz. Who was found guilty last month of fraud in her federal trial in Decatur, Al. That leaves the democrats without a candidate for this seat. The qualifying deadline is this Friday so time is rapidly running out. Three GOPers have already filed for this seat. Given the make up of that House district,how it votes in statewide elections and that it was held by Ms Schmitz the last eleven years. I would rate it as a toss-up seat. So I would be surprised if they dont find at least a mid level candidate by Friday.
