    I mean, while it looks like based on previous office held/money he'd raised that Stewart is a "legitimate candidate," if you will, Obama's absolutely going to have his ass handed to him in this district, right?

    •  Probably fool's gold (0+ / 0-)

      Stewart will need quite a few Romney/Stewart voters, and, based on Stewart being a state legislator from that area of Tennessee and DesJarlaisgate being blown wide open, there will be quite a few Romney/Stewart voters, but I don't think there will be enough of them to get Stewart elected to Congress.

      I wish, but I live here.

      I've read comments from other doctors in the area who have blown this off as political posturing and character is disgusting. How can a fellow physician gloss over this? No clue.

      He's a pig. He's always been a pig. I am still staggered that this pig was elected.

    •  It depends (4+ / 0-)

      It's been redistricted significantly.  He has low name recognition amongst the voters (according to a poll by the TN Democratic Party.)  If this story gets out enough, it could hurt him if it's the only thing the voters know about him.  First impressions and all.

      His challenger, Eric Stewart, has some good points.  Not so good to my thinking, but perhaps welcome in this circumstance, he's rated 100% by Right to Life.  Good on the environment.  Some tax troubles: a small businessman having trouble keeping up with his payroll tax obligation, I guess is the best way to put it.
