Mark Levin: Support Joe Carr Against the "Awful" Alexander
Conservative scholar and talk radio host Mark Levin said he is rooting for Tennessee state Representative Joe Carr to defeat Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) in next week's August 7th GOP Senate primary.
On his Monday radio program, Levin said Alexander, realizing that he was vulnerable because of his support for Obamacare and amnesty, has been "putting down all upstart challengers" that he thought could run against him. Levin simply called Alexander "awful."
Carr has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham, who campaigned for Carr in the state.
On Breitbart News Sunday, Carr said the grassroots has "absolutely caught fire" and the race was "very, very, very" close. He implied that it has tightened even more since a poll conducted two weeks ago found that Carr closed a 22-point deficit and trailed Alexander by 7 points.
Levin said primary voters in Tennessee will have to decide if they want to "go back for more Lamar Alexander," which he said would be a vote for more debt, more government, and more Obamacare.
