Gov. Bill Lee speaks to reporters in Nashville on July 6, 2022. (Erik Schelzig, Tennessee Journal)

Issue No. 26 of The Tennessee Journal is out. Here is what’s in it:

— Lee draws heavy criticism for silence on charter operator’s ‘dumb’ teachers remark.

— Unconventional thinking:  Effort to host RNC in Nashville runs into heavy opposition.

— From the campaign trail: Nobody here but us RINOs, online poll shenanigans, the race for Charlie Sargent’s old seat, and waiting for the gloves to come off in the 5th.

Also: The “poop hits the fan” in Maury County, Jimmy Matlock gets higher ed nod, economic development upheaval around the state, and a new name for invasive carp.
