Nashville Democrat Larry Crim said he is planning a U.S. Senate campaign against Republican Lamar Alexander. He planned a press conference in Nashville on Saturday.

Mr. Crim filed a petition in Federal Court last year seeking a new primary after the Tennessee Democratic Party disavowed its nominee as a non bona fide democrat and member of a known hate group.

He said he will announce on Saturday in front of that same federal courthouse.

Mr. Crim said, “I want my fellow Democrats, voters, and all Tennesseans to know today that they have a Democratic U.

S. Senate candidate to face and replace Republican Lamar Alexander in the United States Senate.”

He said he will then travel across town to greet fellow Tennessee Democrats as party officials gather in Nashville at United Steelworkers headquarters to elect a new leader of the Tennessee Democratic Party.

Mr. Crim said, “We want to let all Tennesseans know that Larry Crim is front and center and ready to retire Lamar Alexander because he wants to take the retirement funds of Tennesseans and deny disaster relief to Americans. Tennesseans saw the true colors of Lamar Alexander who, when the chips were down, called it an 'opportunity' to propose to raid the funds of retirees and deny disaster relief to our fellow Americans.'”

He said he was "shocked when Alexander appeared recently with Corker in Washington, D.C on the eve of the fiscal cliff countdown to advocate reducing, delaying, deferring, and denying the social security benefits of his fellow Tennesseans as an answer to the nation's budgetary woes.” Crim has proposed the Social Security Protection Act (SSPA), which would prevent the social security trust funds of Americans from being used to balance the budget."

Roy Exum: Al Sharpton’s Wise Remarks

I’ll admit I paid little more than scant attention to the Monday funeral of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old who was shot and killed by police bullets in Ferguson, Mo., after he allegedly was involved in strong-armed robbery. There are too many tawdry details and, in my way of thinking, there is nothing under God’s sun, absolutely nothing, that gives others the right to riot, burn ... (click for more)
