With early voting starting in less than two weeks, the battle over three current Tennessee Supreme Court justices' jobs has reached Chattanooga, the Times Free Press reports. Attorneys, led by Lee Davis, have been meeting with local leaders in an attempt to generate support for the three justices standing for retention votes. "What we try to do is get out to the civic-minded voters what the truthful record of these justices is," Davis said. “The vote will take care of itself.” Meanwhile Chattanooga Tea Party leader Mark West said this past week that local conservatives have begun efforts to unseat the justices. "We're strongly in support of replacing these justices," he said.
