I Bet I Can Count on One Finger the number of African Americans Bill Haslam's children attended school with during his parenting.
If the Haslam's really wanted to change the world they could pay off the state's debt. Once that happens, I will become a Haslam fan!
What a joke and a waste of our time.
Just another example of length's the Don Sundquist crowd, which is the same group running Haslam's campaign, will go do to produce a victory for Big Oil Tycoon Bill Haslam and his family. The Haslam's control Nashville's Pinnacle Financial which has done nothing to help us here in Chattanooga. If you all did not know this, Big Jim Haslam was Don Sundquist Finance Chairman.The Haslam family privately funded the advertising to impose a state income tax on all of us Tennesseans.
As a taxpayer and small business owner I am sick and tired of these folks controlling our republican party. Bob Corker is on the Haslam payroll now and does not take a crap without calling the Haslam's as he was Jimmy roommate in college. Last week he went to Memphis with Bill Haslam on the Pilot jet trying to get Fred Smith to pressure Gibbons not to support Zach. All this Senate finance committee stuff is about protecting the Haslam family bank headquartered in Nashville. Rob McCabe, the Cahirman of Pinnacle is married to Big Jim's Haslam's daughter.
Ted Welch of Nashville and Kim Kaegi, Haslam's Bag chick, has raised over $1 million from out of state for Haslam. Ron Ramsey wants to destroy our beautiful mountaintops like we have here in Chattanooga. They will insure Nashville and Knoxville are the center for all state $$ under Haslam and Chattanooga would get nothing as all the money would flow to Knoxville.
God help us Chattanooga. We need to give Zach all the $$ we can to insure he wins this race. We all know what he has done for us over the years. Chattanooga will be a have a great future with Zach looking out for us in Nashville.
Zach, we are with you and I sent $200, which is all I can tonight on your website. Go Zach!
Bill Haslam is planning on dropping $20 Bills from the family jet all over Memphis with his picture on them to lure the Memphis voters.
Ron Ramsey needs to quit using these diversion tactics about healthcare reform to draw attention away from this sessions legislative agenda that is all about taking care of those PACS that have contributed over $150,000 to his Governor campaign. Pfizer alone has contributed over $30,000 and he and Senator Johnson are making sure Tenncare is taking good care of their interest.
Ramsey needs some special attention from the ethics commission he now opposes. In addtion to Big Pharma, he is taking money from the Payday loan people and they have a new Senate Bill that limits Payday loan interest to 100%. He is really all about sticking it to those who are suffering in this enviroment.
Ramsey could not win a congressional district race mcuh less a state race. Haslam is already referring to him as his BOY.
Ramsey loaned his campaign $200,000. That money will never be spent. Every poll shows it is Zach's race right now with Haslam second and ramsey no where in sight.
Ramsey should start his tv campaign if he wants anyone to know who he is.
If Haslam wants to be Governor he should immediately dispose of all Pilot assets. He cannot govern without prejudice and Pilot will benefit either intentionally or unintentionally. I would not call going to work for daddy's company a real job.
Yes he does. It will be like watching the fox guard the hen house.
Why in the world is there a quote from the most irrelevant politico in Tennessee in this piece. Chip Forrester has no candidate. I know Chip and his fellow democrats (including many n the media) like Haslam because of his liberal views but an attempt to give Chip Forrester relevance? Give me a break. Have the democrats raised $1 million collectively?
Andy, you already know Haslam did not have 7300 contributors. He had 7300 transactions reported many from the same contributors like his brother-in-law Rob McCabe that runs Pinnacle Bank and people from New York in the financial business. A whole lot of Big Oil and Banking money on the Haslam side. Why not do a little of investigative reporting?
Pilot Oil is a state of Tennessee vendor. Pilot is regulated by the state of Tennessee. Bill Haslam is a large shareholder in the company. Bill is running for Governor and regulatory agencies he will oversee will be responsible for regulating Pilot. Both Bill and Pilot should disclose all tax documents and let the public determine the scope of risks if he were to be elected. With all due respect, his judgment has not so good in light of his flip flopping on the 2nd Amendment.
