Chalks endorsement of Blackburn up to a ‘business decision’
Clarksville, TN – Gannett’s Nashville paper, the Tennessean, has endorsed the incumbent rather than retired Iraqi War veteran Dan Cramer, in the race for Tennessee’s 7th congressional district. Cramer expressed amusement at the paper’s choice but said he understands how supporting the presumed “safe bet” is a better business decision.
“I am always grateful and honored by any endorsement,” Cramer said, “But one of the realities of politics is that not everyone will agree with you 100% of the time. In the case of the Tennessean’s choice, I can see how their financial interests are better served by endorsing a presumed strong incumbent, but I think there are some interesting inconsistencies in their reasoning.
Tennessee State Representative Curtis Johnson named Legislator Of The Year by The National Association Of Mutual Insurance Companies
Indianapolis, IN – The National Association Of Mutual Insurance Companies (NAMIC) presented its State Legislator of the Year Award to Tennessee State Representative Curtis Johnson (R-Clarksville) citing his intense support of free-market principles and for taking strong positions to improve the insurance market in his state.

Clarksville, TN – Democratic nominee for Congress Dan Cramer and former Republican candidate Jacob Brimm have filed a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics against incumbent Rep. Marsha Blackburn, for actions surrounding her absence at a July debate in Bolivar, Tennessee.
The complaint alleges that Blackburn potentially misused the time of a staffer, Johnny Blakely, who was dispatched to attend the debate in Blackburn’s stead. Blakely is a member of Blackburn’s congressional staff, not her campaign staff, and if he was appearing at the Bolivar debate while being paid with taxpayer money, it could be considered a violation of the rules of the House of Representatives. «Read the rest of this article»
