Leadbetter Is A Phony Republican
It is apparently okay for some Republicans to sellout when they lose their primaries
However, when a so-called "establishment" candidate loses, the story is different for some. Republican candidate for the 7th District Tennessee Senate Ron Leadbetter was defeated by State Representative Stacey Campfield last Thursday. Rather than concede to Campfield and offer his help like a good Republican and a real gentleman, Mr. Leadbetter has said that he is "not going to comment" on whether he will help Campfield in the fall-making it clear that he will not. Far worse, however, Leadbetter is hinting through his supporters in the local establishment press engine that he is open to supporting Democratic nominee Randy Walker. So much for the notion that Ron Leadbetter is anything other than a Republican-in-name-only.
