Tom Humphrey:

"Renee Hoyos, executive director of the Tennessee Clean Water Network, has filed papers with the Federal Election as a candidate for election in the 2nd Congressional District, reports the Nashville Post. She becomes the second Democrat to enter the contest to succeed Republican U.S. Rep. John J. “Jimmy” Duncan."

Tom was quoting me ;)

Renee says she'll issue a statement soon but she's sick as hell today, which explains why she never called me back ...

I have to ask the question...

Is the 2nd District ready for a candidate who will put her constituents' interests first above her own personal aggrandizement and wealth? I mean aside from being brilliant, knowledgeable, dedicated, caring, accomplished, and hard working, what does she have to offer?

Renee Hoyas has a long history of service, and not just as an eco-warrior. I've known Renee for quite a while and have admired what she has gotten done for Tennessee against formidable odds. I wish I could vote for her.
