Now we are starting to get to the fun part of the race! The Republicans are starting to rip at each other. Diane Black says that Randy Boyd and Bill Lee are too moderate (could have fooled me). Boyd swings back by calling her D.C. Diane and running a clip of her saying that building a wall won't work. Time to get the popcorn ready; waiting to see when Bill Lee and Beth Harwell will join the fray.

Turn off the popcorn popper. It's a primary. Did you expect them to endorse each other?

I have no idea as which one, out of all of them, I can vote for.

Popcorn popper will be used. It will be fun to watch them chew on each other. It will be interesting to see who comes out of this to run against Karl Dean in the general election.

For me, I have a preference, but I could live with anyone except Diane Black. I would be highly unhappy if she won the general election.

Diane Black, is she the one running the ad about being from; "the wrong side of the tracks"?

Well, an interesting outcome in the Republican race for governor in Tennessee. Diane Black, who was pictured a week or so ago smiling at Trump's elbow, has gone down in flames in the primary. So she has gone from a powerful position on the Budget Committee to "what should I do next". Guess her attempt to be the "Trumpiest" candidate along with her mud-slinging didn't work out. Should be a fun general election between Karl Dean and Bill Lee.

Pence had endorsed Black, but Trump was likely warned to stay out of the primary because it was unclear who would end up getting the nomination. Trump is all about "winning" and doesn't want to have his endorsement linked to a candidate who falls short. There seems to be a general consensus this year that the House of Representatives is not an ideal launching pad for candidates seeking higher office.

Yeah, I'm no Black fan by any stretch of the imagination. But it was sort of sad how badly she wanted the endorsement of Trump and just couldn't get him to say it. He would say how great she was and put her beside him for the one photo op and she would say how much she supported him. But in the end, he just wouldn't pull the trigger on the endorsement.
