U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper (D-Nashville) is endorsing former Nashville Mayor Karl Dean’s bid for governor.

Cooper joins fellow U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Memphis) and former U.S. Reps. Lincoln Davis and Bob Clement in giving the nod to Dean’s bid against state House Minority Leader Craig Fitzhugh in the Democratic gubernatorial primary.

Personally I give Dean the edge over Fitzhugh, but whether Craig Fitzhugh (who I totally love and respect) or Karl Dean (Who I support enthusiastically and monetarily) wins, I will give my dedicated support, because the lessor of those two noble public servants is better by far than the best of the GOP trump sycophants their ads show them to be.
