Sources contacted the Brian's Blog Team this evening stating that Brian Hornback's opponent was stating that Brian was upstairs at the Crowne Plaza during the Republican County Primary Election Return Party. This was a total lie. Brian was in West Knox County attending to business and family matters. While his opponent does not have a family (with the exception of a spouse), Mr. Hornback and his wife of 22 years have three teenagers. So, while Brian has attended nearly every Republican function for the past 28 years (since 1982) it is more important to Brian that he maintains his focus on faith, family and conservative values. We encourage Mr. Hornback's opponent to tone down the personal negative baseless unfounded attacks on Hornback.
