Knoxville Lawyer Launches Campaign Against Alexander

Knoxville lawyer Terry Adams today launched a campaign to secure the Democratic nomination to take on Republican incumbent Sen. Lamar Alexander. Adams runs a seven-attorney law firm and owns a title company in Knoxville. He said he already has secured support from the current and four prior heads of the Tennessee Democratic Party. Former Tennessee Democratic Party chair Bob Tuke, who lost to Alexander in 2008, has been named his campaign treasurer. Nashville counseling company executive Larry Crim has also declared plans to seek the nomination.
