Mancini cruises to another term as chair of Tennessee Democrats

Mary Mancini has turned back a challenge from Holly McCall to be elected to another term as chair of the Tennessee Democratic Party. The Tennessean’s Joey Garrison was there:

Mancini got 70% of the vote, compared with 28% for McCall — a similar margin McCall lost by when she ran for the state House against Republican Sam Whitson in 2016.

The Democrats’ decision to keep Mancini in charge follows a move by Tennessee Republicans’ decision to keep Scott Golden for another two-year term as chairman.

    Mancini is the best thing that has happened to the Democratic Party in Tennessee. Smart as a tack. In fact, she could put many of the national “stars” to shame.

      She’s also the best thing to happen to the Republican Party. I like my Democrats to be loony liberals, the loonier the better. The type who alienate the majority of Americans the minute they enter a room and seal the deal the minute they open their mouth. Totally out of the mainstream of any jurisdiction that I happen to call home.

      Holly was a worrying figure – Williamson County sane and likeable I’d call her. Well, you Democrats certainly took care of her I’m happy to say. Congratulations all around – the Democrats got what they richly deserve and wanted, and the Republicans can rest assured that the crucial elections in Tennessee will continue to be held in August of even numbered years in the Republican Primary.

    The Dems did well in the support they gave last year to A.J. Holmes for state rep in Maury County. I actually voted for Holmes, with no delusions. I usually vote Republican.

    The Dems, however, shouldn’t be in control of anything in government.

    Love the logic that says I voted for the Democrat, but they should never be in control of government.
