Haslam's New Strategy
Bill Haslam's latest campaign strategy may not be the best
To be fair to Haslam, he isn't the first Republican to paint McWherter in a positive light for a campaign promotion, Lamar Alexander did it in a 2008 U.S. Senate re-election promotion, pointing out how Alexander and McWherter reached across the aisle to work together on education reform and other issues. It seems that Haslam forgets who his Democratic opponent is, and that the man he is lauding in his latest advertisement is the father of his opposition, and is the driving force behind the Democrats' campaign. Is it Haslam's wish to give his opponent ammunition to be used late in the game, say, before the start of early voting?
