She is hoping Nashville drives the better organized counties for Fleischmann out of the District in redistricting. That would nuetralize Beauchamp and the Union County folks and my fiend Robin is back in the game. Fat chance. Anderson and Roane County were the margin of victory. Fleischmann will keep his key people in the 3rd District. However, it is her best shot.
Robin Smith is holding on to a dream that has died. Thank you Chuck for saving us from years of this stuff.
In America there is a winner and a loser. team building is over stated. Fleischmann won the race, I supported Robin, but it is time to move on. As stated before the pros in Anderson County took this election away from the southern gurus of politics. Oscar needs to call Beauchamp and get some help next time. It all came down to the north.
As a Republican, Nashville resident, and strong Robin Smith supporter I have analyzed this election. Robin's victory in her hometown was completely off set in Anderson County and Roane County with a 1500 vote margin. Fleischmann had to have a big vote there to win the election. The grass roots campaign engineered by Mr Beauchamp was the difference in the election. If he supports a different candidate, Robin would have won the election. I was stunned that he pulled it off with all the support she had in Anderson County. He is to be congratulated for his efforts. Fleischmann carried no other county by more than 550 votes. I applaud Robin Smith and all her contributions to our state party. She did amazing things during her tenure. I hope Mr Fleischmann will keep his word and vote against earmarks in Washington DC and repeal ObamaCare.
