In four days I will finally be a Tennessee resident. I've already arrived in spirit, I suppose, but I'm always curious about the odd nooks and crannies of the Volunteer State. One thing I've always wonderered is: what is the most conservative place in Tennessee?
Remember, this may or may not also be the most Republican place considering Tennessee's unique Civil War heritage where many moderate East Tennesseans vote Republican and conservative West Tennesseeans vote Democratic. And you can't judge it simply by virtue of a particular legislator from the district: West Knoxville, home of Stacy Campfield, is not nearly as conservative as the legislator who represents it (though it's still a fairly conservative place). Consider both economic and religious issues.
My pick would be Cleveland, TN. Not only did Bradley County give the highest percentage vote of any county to Jim Bryson, but the city is the worldwide home to its own Pentecostal Church. What do you all think?
