Haslam and guns on the TeeVee
Gene asked Frank Cagle, Mike Cohen, and me if Mayor Haslamís alliance with Bloomberg might have an effect if Haslam ran for Governor. We all agreed it would. Cagle said something to the effect that he could envision a 30 second spot and he reminded viewers of Al Goreís problems in Tennessee over his weak Second amendment stance.
I didn’t catch it but, hopefully, they’ll have video of it soon here.
It’s widely rumored that Haslam has his eyes on higher office (Governor, is what I hear). That’s when this will bite him in the rear. His political opponents in heavily pro-gun Tennessee will point out that Haslam is supporting New York style gun control and that he is affiliated with the anti-gun Joyce Foundation.
