Franklin, TN – In the absence of a traditional candidate debate, local Democrats in Tennessee’s 7th congressional district have taken matters into their own hands to organize a debate online for their candidates for US House, incumbent Republican Marsha Blackburn and Democratic challenger Dan Cramer.
Cramer, of Clarksville, previously reached out to Blackburn’s office to schedule a traditional debate, but the incumbent refused. At a July debate in Bolivar, Tennessee, prior to the primary, Blackburn’s campaign sent a proxy to appear in her stead. At the time, Blackburn cited her responsibilities in Washington as her reason for not participating.
Clarksville, TN – The opening day of Riverfest was summed up in one word, hot! I was sweating from the moment I arrived at 5:00pm, until I left at 11:00pm. A chance of rain had been forecast but thankfully did not appear, or it would’ve made it even more humid.
Crowds begin trickling in shortly before the 5:00pm opening, and things picked up steadily through the evening. Turnout was lower than expected but that was likely due to people avoiding the heat, and the forecast showers.
