It's going to be a long year for Democrats in Tennessee
[T]he demise of the Democratic Party can even be seen in the reality that no one takes the Democratic field for Governor seriously, it is almost as if that section of candidates doesn't even exist. You might say "gosh Oatney, that is East Tennessee, where Republicans dominate the political scene anyway. A year with no Democrats running isn't exactly surprising." What is shocking is that as Democrats gather in these caucuses or conventions, no one has been willing to come forward to run in the days leading up to the filing deadline for local county primaries in many of these jurisdictions in East Tennessee.
