There is a State primary for State Representatives and for half of the State Senate seats in the state. There is a primary for the U.S. Congress and U.S. Senate.
Most of the campaigns have been friendly and focused on the issues. I intend to cast my vote on Saturday, the last day of early vote. I may still be prone to be influenced for my vote on a race or two. So you can email me, here and make your case.
Here is an example of friendly, focused and fair campaigning.
This is a photo from the Farragut Fourth of July parade. It is the Don Sproles entourage. Sproles is running for Knox County Commission, District Five Seat C. He is an licensed attorney and works with his wife in their successful Knoxville based restaurant business, The Lunchbox. Check out Don's website, here. Click on the Links section and you can view or listen to a debate or two between he and his opponent from the two television stations and from Newtalk 100.
