Those who are hoping for a viable Democratic candidate in our State Senate race may soon have an option. There's a buzz going but nothing announced so far.

Let's keep each other posted.

Ruppe to Announce

Morgan County Mayor Becky Ruppe is expected to make an announcement today or early next week, that is is going to be a candidate for the 12th District State Senate seat.

That would be the name I heard

I also heard that polling was favorable against the expected candidates, but who knows.

Becky is a smart lady.

I'd hate to lose her for Morgan County. But I bet she'd do a fine job, and would be good for Roane County in Nashville. She's sure done well where she is.
