Cooper Vs. Harwell?

Posted By on Mon, Nov 7, 2011 at 9:12 AM

In his weekly column, Channel 5's Pat Nolan reports that somebody's polling to find out how House Speaker Beth Harwell might do in a contest against Congressman Jim Cooper.

"Would House Speaker Beth Harwell of Nashville give up her powerful position and safe seat in the State House of Representatives to run for Congress against incumbent Democrat Jim Cooper?" Nolan asks.

Harwell denies it's her poll, and so does Cooper, and Harwell's peeps tell Nolan she's not thinking about challenging the congressman. Nolan concludes one of the national parties' congressional committees is paying for it.

"But obviously," he says, "there are many in the Republican Party who see Cooper as vulnerable, especially with the right candidate and the right district."
