Brian Hornback: Please explainThe Tennessee Republican Senate Primary is not over by any means, and will not end until August. That being the case, local supporters of both Ed Bryant and Van Hilleary deserve to know why I happened to see a huge Bob Corker sign on the front lawn of the building as Nicole and I passed by Republican Headquarters on our way home this afternoon.
The Republican nomination is not yet decided, and our Party has a longstanding custom of making no official endorsement during a contested Primary. Why is there a huge Corker sign in front of the building housing the headquarters of our great Party?
If Corker becomes the nominee, I can understand this-begrugingly-though I shall post no sign for Bob Corker on my person or property even if he is the nominee. If the nominee is Corker, I can see there being a sign for him at Party headquarters. However, unless the Primary has already taken place this blatant favoritism is uncalled for.
