Tennessee Tea Party Leaders: Lamar Alexander a 'Mushy Moderate'

In Nashville on Thursday, about a half-dozen Tennessee Tea Party leaders gathered with the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund to denounce current Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander and promote his Republican challenger Joe Carr.

Cunningham explained that every six years, Alexander campaigns as a conservative but fails to fight for conservative values.

Cunningham confirmed to Breitbart News that Alexander invited him to a meeting before the election heated up.

He indicated that Alexander was curious about Tea Party activity in the area.

The Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund announced a $20,000 commitment to the Real Conservatives National Committee for their “Beat Lamar” effort.

Pierotti praised Carr for having a strong record of fighting against amnesty — particularly in Tennessee.

Delane Stewart of the Upper Cumberland Tea Party lamented that many in Tennessee were indifferent about Alexander, because they had no idea of his record, particularly on immigration reform.

The small group of Tea Party organizers praised Joe Carr for being a fighter and an honest conservative.
