The Tennessee Journal
's Ed Cromer is predicting Republicans will hold the state Senate on Tuesday, but he doesn't sound too sure about it. If Cromer is right, the Senate will wind up 17-15-1.
In today's edition of the insider's newsletter, Cromer picks Mike Williams against Mike Faulk in District 4, but "it could go either way," and he predicts the GOP will snag a Democratic seat with a victory by Ken Yager against Becky Ruppe in District 12, though "this one too could go either way."
He's going with Randy Camp against Delores Gresham in District 26 but only if you put a gun to his head. "If we had to bet, we'd bet on Camp, but we wouldn't bet much."
Otherwise, the Journal
says it's "possible, but not likely" that Republicans will take the House. Best shots for GOP gains include Joe Carr against Tim Tipps in District 48, Terri Lynn Weaver against Cleveland Derrick Bain in District 40, and Vance Dennis against Stan Wheeler in District 71.
