Attendee at Chattanooga GOP event tests positive for COVID-19

Last weekend’s Hamilton County Lincoln Day dinner has proven to be the source of much intrigue over the veracity of its straw poll, because Senate candidates weren’t wearing masks, and due to allegations of the strategic deployment of campaign workers wearing short skirts. Now, the Hamilton County Health Department is urging anyone who was there to get tested for COVID-19 after someone who attended tested positive.

“We know that COVID-19 is highly contagious and can spread easily at large gatherings,” Health Department Administrator Becky Barnes said in a release. “We recommend staying home if you are sick, practicing social  distancing, wearing a mask, and washing your hands frequently to stop the spread of the virus in our community.”

Bill Hagerty and Manny Sethi, the leading candidates for the GOP nomination to succeed retiring U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, both attended.

Here’s what Sethi had to say:

And here’s what the Hagerty camp told  told WCRB-TV:

As Election Day quickly approaches, we are focused on sharing Bill’s positive conservative message with Tennessee voters. They’re tired of mandates and being told what to do by the government. Bill trusts the good people of Tennessee to make the right decisions for themselves.

Meanwhile, Democratic Senate candidate James Mackler wasn’t impressed.

    There’s another unfair advantage Republicans have in any election. Seriously folks, have you seen the girls/women who are enthusiastic about the Democrats? Would you even want to see them in short skirts?

    No comments about COVID exposure, plenty about short skirts. That sounds about right.

      Jonathan you better get used to it. If Biden should stumble and bumble his way to the Presidency there will no longer be any reason for the leftists in this country to try to tank the economy by making everyone frightened to death about the WuFlu. At that time there will be considerably fewer comments about “COVID exposure” from the Democratic public relations dept. AKA the mainstream media and, I suspect, from you.

    The Trump/Republican diversion strategy in full view. When the evidence shows once again that being a republican and not wearing a face mask in fact does NOT protect you from being exposed to the virus, they start talking about short skirts. It is by now an old tired trick from a bankrupt GOP that has nothing to offer the American public. Time for a change, they have killed way too many of our fellow citizens by neglect and doing nothing. This virus won’t be stopped by talking about hem lines!
