With Tea Party support, Tennessee's Alexander looks safe

With Tea Party support, Tennessee's Alexander looks safe 

The Examiner,Jun 12, 2013, Washington D.C. - Two-term Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander has pulled off a surprise for Washington-based Tea Party groups eagerly looking for a more conservative alternative to make a primary challenge in 2014: He's already the movement's cup of tea.

A new poll from Vanderbilt University's Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions found that 62 percent of Tennessee voters who describe themselves as Tea Party activists approve of Alexander, a one-time presidential candidate and education secretary under former President George H.W. Bush.(link)

  1. No way does a majority of REAL conservative Tea Party members favor the ultra liberal Lame Alexander. He could easily be a "moderate" Democrat.

    Who could put any credibility in something named "Vanderbilt University Center for Study of Democrat Institutions?

    Let's hope Tennessee can find a Ted Cruz to primary this Establishment elitist.
