Tea Party Searches for Challenger to Alexander

Tennessee Tea Party activists are launching a set of “vetting” sessions to find a challenger to U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander in next year’s Republican primary, the Tennessean reports. “Everybody has agreed that we need to get behind a single candidate and put our efforts behind someone who can challenge Lamar, debate his public record and basically just push back against the Republican establishment that is trying to bully and intimidate anyone who wants to run against him,” Nashville Tea Party president Ben Cunningham said.
