Black lands endorsement from candidate who ‘won by losing’

Republican gubernatorial candidate Diane Black is touting the endorsement of former Vanderbilt professor Carol Swain, who famously declared she “won by losing” her bid for Nashville mayor this year after she won 23% of the vote.

“I will be voting for Representative Diane Black for the GOP gubernatorial nomination,” Swain writes in her endorsement. “I believe Diane can defeat Karl Dean and become the next governor of Tennessee.”

After her loss to David Briley in the Nashville mayor’s race in May, Swain said: “We won by losing. Our short campaign ignited a conversation about the real challenges facing Nashville.”

      There’s goes the Republican Islamist vote for Diane. Your keen political eye quickly discerned the political implications of that one James.

      Really!?!? As an ANBODY BUT BOYD voter I’m very interested in the latest standings and I’ve been reading your same mantra for a week or two. Do you have any poll that wasn’t taken by a guy named Lee or someone on Lee’s payroll who confirms your observation. Sorry, I haven’t seen one.
      Under the circumstances I still intend to vote for Diane but I’m waiting until election day so there’s still time.

    I have a lot of respect for Carol Swain. She has been an articulate conservative spokesman at a very liberal university in a very liberal city. I appreciate and applaud her comments on radical Islam as most thoughtful conservatives do.
