And in Tennessee, Mike McWherter, son of former governor Ned Ray McWherter, is the likely Democratic gubernatorial nominee but doesn't have much chance of claiming the state's top office in the fall.
Wow! So Chris Cillizza has written off McWherter. Why are we even bothering to hold the election? Let's do the Republican primary and call it a day. It's true that, given the political environment, you'd have to consider McWherter an underdog at this point. But he's still got a decent shot at winning, doesn't he? And what if crazy Zach Wamp or Ron Ramsey is the Republican nominee? Suddenly, McWherter will look like a world-beater. We don't think Cillizza knows what he's talking about.
