NRA taps DesJarlais

Scott DesJarlais gets the NRA's nod:

The National Rifle Association (NRA) has endorsed Congressman Scott DesJarlais in the Republican primary for Tennessee’s Fourth Congressional District.

According to the NRA, Congressman DesJarlais has earned an “A” rating from the organization for his “consistent and proven voting record” of supporting Second Amendment rights and in opposition to President Obama’s gun control agenda.

“I am honored to have received this endorsement by the NRA, an organization supported by gun owners all across Tennessee’s Fourth Congressional District,” said Congressman DesJarlais. “When I ran for Congress, I promised I would never compromise when it came to protecting our right to keep and bear arms. I am proud to have held the line time and time again against the Obama administration’s unconstitutional attempts to curtail our Second Amendment rights.”

The weekend with the Supremes

The anti-Supremes are up with an ad that the Keep The Supremes folks say is false and that Phil Williams says takes quotes out of context.

Meanwhile, there doesn't seem to be much effort to replace the Republican justices, does there?

Campfield uses state-paid constituent communications on TV ads

The state gives legislators thousands of dollars each year to cover the costs of communicating with constituents, and Sen. Stacey Campfield is the first to use that money to air "legislative updates" on cable TV, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports.

The money — $6,832 annually for state senators and $2,016 for reps — is typically used on postage and printing costs. Lawmakers tend to stockpile those dollars and either use them on mailers shortly before the elections or transfer funds to fellow legislators. While the state prohibits lawmakers from including political references or postmarking the communications fewer than 30 days from the election, critics argue the communications give incumbents an edge over political challengers. The Dean has more on who gave, who received, and how sitting legislators are spending that money.
