Primaries and the Legislature

In an Examiner column today, I deal with the tough issue of legislators campaigning in primaries:

Would Kent Williams have made a deal to be elected Speaker of the Tennessee House of Representatives if Republican legislators had not campaigned against in such a public way in his 2008 primary?

Of course it is difficult to read anyone's mind, let alone Kent Williams, but legislators getting too involved in primaries can create some on-the-job acrimony where none need exist.

Yes. Mumps never campaigned against him. Neither did many others who he lied to. It was for his own glory he did what he did. He said he would do it again and intends to.

Don't fall for the snow job.

I don't know what world Stacey X is living in, but the whole Republican establishment was after Kent. Of course he felt free to cut a deal with Naifeh and the Dems - the only people he could trust.
