Appellate Court Keeps Breeding off Ballot

Shelley Breeding cannot be a Knox County candidate for the General Assembly, a three-judge panel of the Tennessee Court of Appeals ruled this morning. The panel upheld a chancery court decision that Breeding is legally a resident of Anderson County saying she "has not produced any credible evidence" that maps showing the location of her home are inaccurate. Breeding had wanted to run in the Democratic primary in the newly created 89th District, which lies entirely in Knox County. The News Sentinel reports
