Mike Williams: desperate

I think it is official that Mike Williams is both running for re-election and desperate. I received a mailer with Williams' picture on the back:

STATE SENATOR MIKE WILLIAMS INVITES YOU TO TAKE A SALES TAX HOLIDAY.
A common sense state budget includes tax relief for you and less business lost to other states. Senator Mike Williams is a strong supporter of a balanced budget and Tennessee's Sales Tax Holiday
.

The mailer then goes on to explain what items are exempt from taxation April 27-29. It is a very slick mailer, with a picture of a State flag shopping bag and sales tax holiday tag on the front face. Williams' picture is to be found on the back next to the above statement. The casual and uninformed resident-constituent might conveniently be left with the impression from this mail piece that Mike Williams is responsible for the sales tax holiday.

Bets on how much it cost to send out the mailer?

My state Senator Tommy Kilby did the same thing. I got it in the mail yesterday.

I think Mike and Tommy are in the same boat, desperate and running for re-election...

The sad part is that the uninformed voter may make the assumptions that Williams and Kilby want them to make.
