Lamar Alexander is so assured of his own re-election, he brought Don Sundquist on to the team.
Congressman Jimmy Duncan, the chairman of the re-election campaign of U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander, announced today that all former Tennessee Republican Governors & U.S. Senators will serve as Honorary Campaign Co-Chairs for Lamar Alexander’s 2014 re-election efforts.
