The last TNGOP media blast claiming to contain politically incriminating audio of a Democratic candidate turned out to be less than accurate. The one that just hit our inboxes, however — containing the video seen above — is pretty straightforward.
Metro councilman Bo Mitchell is running against Republican Charles Williamson in House District 50. It seems at a recent candidates' forum, he was asked who he was supporting in the presidential race. Apparently, he'd rather keep that to himself.
There's no question that a full-throated endorsement of President Barack Obama's re-election would hurt a Democratic candidate in many Tennessee districts. Likewise, if a Democratic candidate is planning on voting for Mitt Romney, it wouldn't look so great if he or she undermined the leader of the party they're representing by saying so. That said, the third option — dancing around, as Mitchell does here — doesn't look much better.
