Former Gov. Phil Bredesen is entering the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate from Tennessee .

Democrats step up their national recruiting for the 2018 elections…

This is for the US Senate seat that Bob Corker is not running for re-election….

According to multiple sources, Bredesen began calling major donors this afternoon to confirm that he is in the race. He has been mum about a campaign since U.S. Sen. Bob Corker announced he would step down next year, only acknowledging that he was contemplating a run. A formal announcement of his intent to run has not yet been made.

Bredesen was elected governor in 2002 and served through 2010. He was the mayor of Metro Nashville from 1991 to 1999. His entrance in the Senate race means there will be a contested primary next August, something attorney and political newcomer James Mackler was hoping to avoid. However, it’s possible a competitive primary could spur interest in the race from Democrats who have been used to having a slate of candidates on statewide ballots that range from bad to abysmal in recent years. And along with a possibly competitive governor’s race and a national atmosphere predicted to be like 2006 and 2010 — as far as flipping seats — Bredesen’s entrance should make for a very interesting race indeed….

A Border Surge is Political Bull Shit…

NO it will NOT…..

And are the American people willing to give up social programs so the Conservatives can deal with their fears on brown and yellow people becoming Americans ?….

By entertaining Sens. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and John Hoeven (R-N.D. to get THEIR votes the Gang of Eight Senators seem to have lost their minds…..If I had to vote on this I’d vote the thing down…..

I fail to see how adding 700 miles of fence a Billion dollars worth of border guards is worth all the fuss….Especially when we have a report that immigration is putting over a $100 Billion INTO our economy and the Obama Administration has deported MORE people than the Bush Administration…

The “border surge” plan unveiled on Capitol Hill this week was hailed as a kind of miracle cure for the political ills plaguing the immigration bill the Gang of Eight and President Barack Obama have been tinkering with for months.

The amendment from Sens. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and John Hoeven (R-N.D.) does appear to be a kind of political panacea for the broader legislation — at least in the Senate.

But there’s no quick fix for the complex security challenges along the U.S. border. And it’s far less clear that this proposal — to expand the current border fence to 700 miles, add nearly 20,000 new Border Patrol agents, and spend billions on high-tech equipment — can actually work. Indeed, the effort is so vast and so ambitious that some doubt it will ever be carried out.
