Once upon a time

Once upon a time (July of 1996), Mike Williams ran for the Tennessee Senate. In doing so, he said that he was keeping his personal pledge that he would only serve eight years in the House. Williams was, he said, a big believer in term limits.

I'm not hot on mandatory term limits, but it does help when someone knows when their limit has come and when it is time to hang it up.

So what ever happened to Williams not taking PAC money? He certainly takes plenty of it now, because that is nearly all of what is funding his current campaign. How about those self-imposed term-limits? I guess he only imposes them when he has a chance at seeking higher office.

What about this democrat (thats listed on the SOS website) who filed to run for this seat? If he stays in, it would seem he would pretty much make it impossible for Williams to win in November.
