This week’s print edition of The Tennessee Journal is out. Here is what’s in it:

— And then there was one: Kelsey’s codefendant to plead guilty.

— Campaign finance roundup: Martin neck-in-neck with Lee in third quarter fundraising totals, but far behind in cash on hand.

— From the campaign trail: Blackburn and Hagerty headline fundraiser for Ogles with Cruz waiting in the wings; Lee channels the pope in his latest TV ad.

— Obituary: Larry Cole, former House clerk who wrote novel about a real statehouse romance.

Also: Internal polling points to wide support for “right to work” amendment, Tre Hargett strikes plea agreement in DUI case, John Rich hosts a fundraiser for a firebrand congresswoman in Nashville, and Cameron Sexton declares war on “political gibberish.”
