The TNGOP sent out an ugly mailer saying "Vote early, vote often, that's the Gloria Johnson way" with a crude cartoon of some guy wearing a sticker saying "I voted 14 times."

Just a thought

Historically, large turnouts have favored Democrats and by all accounts, this is shaping up to be a record turnout in Tennessee. My experience in my district is that the votes are counted before the polls even open and judging from the phone activity I saw at Downtown West, there seemed to be some concern over who all these people were and why were they showing up to vote.

I'm wondering if perhaps Republicans have begun to take their base for granted and if indeed there may not be a surprise or two come election day.
