Senate Candidate Crim Hits State Democratic Party Chairman Herron For Endorsing Adams

Sunday, January 12, 2014
U.S. Senate candidate Larry Crim said he was  "stunned, surprised and disappointed” about Roy Herron, chairman of the Tennessee Democrat Party, endorsing a recently announced candidate, Terry Adams, before the primary. 
Mr. Crim said, "I personally met with Chairman Herron and inquired about an endorsement as I have been the only candidate on the campaign trail meeting with voters. I have been to 75 counties in Tennessee meeting with local party officials, speaking at community events, festivals and civic functions for over 12 months now.
 
"Roy Herron told me it was against party rules for him to prefer any one candidate over another or endorse any one until after the primary.” 
He said the endorsement “is not authorized by party bylaws, is contrary to his assurances and represents a betrayal of his official duties and promises." 
Mr. Crim filed his federal candidacy papers for U.S. Senate in January 2013. Campaign staffer Tim Mills said: “Larry Crim and his campaign volunteers have shaken the hands of thousands of Tennesseans asking for their vote and support traveling across Tennessee since that time.”
When asked about the Adams campaign Mr. Crim said: “After being on the campaign trail across Tennessee for over a year, though I've seen Herron lots of places, I've yet to see this guy who says he is a 'serious candidate' at any events.” 
In his efforts to unseat Senator Lamar Alexander the Larry Crim for U.S. Senate Campaign reached over $32,000 in contributions in the last quarter, according to Federal Election Commission records. 
Larry Crim is CEO of Christian Counseling Centers of America, Inc.

Roy Exum: Our Tubman Goat-Roping

Every spring there comes a bright day on the ranch when the straw-boss decrees a goat-roping should take place.
