Schree, You're Not for Tennessee

I caught a television ad for Democratic State Rep. nominee Schree Pettigrew this morning. I took notice because 1) it is unusual to see State Representative candidates advertising on the television waves and 2) Schree's opponent is incumbent Representative Stacey Campfield, who has an excellent record of representing the 18th district.

I guess there was a third reason - I thought that maybe Schree was taking Bobbie Christianberry's advice (given at Congressman Duncan's BBQ) at getting out of the race because she was in way over her head. Alas, that was not the case.

The contents of the ad were laughable. Schree criticized Stacey for wanting things to be smaller. You know, because Tennesseans are really for big government, big tax increases, big TennCare, big out-of-control Pre-K program, big government regulation. Apparently, Schree thinks that it's a bad thing that Stacey Campfield is for a smaller, less intrusive government.

I think Schree is going to be in for a reality check next Tuesday night when the election results start rolling in.
