U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander dropped new radio and television ads today touting the Freedom to Fish Act, which temporarily stops the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from banning boats from certain zones near Cumberland River dams.
Alexander’s Senate colleagues from neighboring Kentucky are featured in the ads, including a clip of U.S. Senator Rand Paul saying “nobody wants to say no” to Alexander.
a couple of a Tennessee state senator is saying no, as a reaction against Alexander’s vote on U.S. immigration reform.
Update: A Sumner County Tea Party group had sent an email saying that Sen. Mark Green of Clarksville announced that he was leaving the Alexander campaign, following an earlier move by Sen. Jim Summerville of Dickson. Updates on the Tea Party group’s blog and at a Nashville newspaper indicate that Green canceled an appearance at an Alexander fundraiser for family reasons. My apologies for linking to the outdated information.
Update 2: Daily Caller editor Jim Antle says…
This ad isn't a Rand Paul endorsement of Lamar Alexander. It's footage of them both supporting same bill. http://t.co/4TIIbLjZVt
