IN TENNESSEE, CLAMORING FOR A CONSERVATIVE TO CHALLENGE ALEXANDER. Some Tea Party folks asked me if I was interested in running. Coincidentally, someone from Alexander’s office reached out to ask if I’d like to have coffee with Lamar. I told the Tea Party folks no. (Give up my gig to be a Senator? Are you kidding?). Coincidentally, I never heard from Alexander’s office again. My take: Alexander has good intelligence.
