Representative Kent Calfee has been under fire for voting against the Roane County Commission's resolution on broadband internet. This seemingly solid incumbent is now on the watch list. He has no opponent in the Republican Primary but has drawn two challengers in the Democratic Primary, Joe Kneiser has picked up a petition and Corey Stafford has filed a petition to run.

More interesting than either of those is former School Board Member Tyler Overstreet who has fied his petition to run against Calfee in November as an independent. Tyler was a strong candidate for County Executive who lost to Mike Farmer in a three way race. I predict Overstreet will be strong competition for Calfee in November.

Good

Good to know some more are entering the race. I read that Fleischman will have a Democrat opponent.
