Will Certain Endorsements Matter?

Can Tennessee Lieutenant Governor Ron Ramsey overcome not being able to raise money for nearly six months?:

It isn't terribly surprising that Ron Ramsey would get a lot of tea party endorsements, he has been angling for them since he announced that he was running for Governor. Trying to get tea party endorsements is a very good political move in a year like this one, but the one thing that may have hurt Ramsey is the sheer length of the legislative session, which moved well into June. While the General Assembly was in session, Ramsey, like other members of the General Assembly, was not in a position to raise money for his campaign for Governor at all from January 12th until May 13th, and couldn't take money from political action committees until the Legislature adjourned. All the while, Ramsey's opponents could all raise money with reckless abandon. Is the law fair? No, but it is the reality that has put Ron Ramsey at a severe disadvantage in the campaign for Governor of Tennessee.
