Tennessee 7th Congressional District Candidate Dan Cramer disappointed with Tennessean Newspaper

 

Chalks endorsement of Blackburn up to a ‘business decision’

Election 2014Clarksville, 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.

Clarksville Beginnings – Part 2: Revisiting the Massacre at Sevier Station; In Their Own Words

 

Clarksville Tennessee HistoryClarksville, TN – I love history and find it fascinating – and you must enjoy it as well or you would not be reading this article! Yet, I could listen and listen to someone who is alive and well with me today go on ad nauseum about the dry facts from the past and get absolutely nothing from it.

But, to hear the very words of those who lived before us – those priceless journals, letters, and testimonies – that is gold to me! It is amazing to be able to peak into their minds and hearts for just a moment and experience with them the joys, the struggles, the hopes, and the pain of the experience of life.

That is what we have with the story of the lives of Valentine Sevier, his family, and community – their own words.
