With some of the GOP's prospective candidates for the constitutional offices:
Among the issues Naifeh has with some of the Republicans seeking the posts are questions about their past political practices and experience. He said that he would like to see Justin Wilson, the former aide to Gov. Don Sundquist who is up for comptroller, answer questions about how contracts were awarded when he was in the governor's office.
Naifeh also said that Tre Hargett, who is up for secretary of state – the position that oversees the Division of Elections – should answer allegations that he removed an opponent's campaign paraphernalia from cars when he was a member of the Tennessee House of Representatives.
Perhaps most interesting, Naifeh called Ira Brody, a candidate for state treasurer, a "political hack" who has thrown money around to Republican candidates in an attempt to get the job.
