Only three days ago, with wife Crissy gazing on adoringly in a TV ad, Bill Haslam was promising to stick to his "campaign of ideas." So much for the high road. We guess we'll have to rely on Basil Marceaux for ideas now. Says Haslam:
“I’ve focused my campaign over the last 18 months on the very serious issues facing Tennessee and its next governor. My opponents, Congressman Wamp and State Senator Ramsey, have focused their efforts on misleading the public about my record and theirs. Enough is enough, and I and my campaign will set the record straight with facts because this election is too important for voters to be purposefully misled by career politicians."
Wamp responds: "This is an amazing weight of advertising that he just ramped up. He's spending his own Pilot Oil money with infomercials in the same way Obama did."
