    Cooper's dad was Governor, which means he is deeply connected to Nashville politics.  That would mean a challenger would have to come from outside the usual circles, and would see fierce local opposition.  It would take a lot of support from outside, and that might turn off some locals, however it seems to work when Republicans do it.

    TN really only has 2 Dem seats in the house.  The gerrymandering is almost as bad as NC, where we now only have 4/13 seats.

    Republicans talk about having electoral votes go by House Districts, how about having House Districts impacted by the overall state vote?  Things used to be done in this way, and it would not be unconstitutional.
