Scottie Mayfield, popular dairy spokesman who previously ran for Congress, on Monday morning endorsed Rep. Chuck Fleischmann for re-election.  

Mr. Mayfield, whose family owns Mayfield Dairy at Athens, Tn., said he had not planned to get involved in this campaign.  He said he decided to do so after he was told that another campaign was saying he was supporting it.  

Mr. Mayfield said, "I felt he was the best candidate for this district.  I was planning to vote for him.  I think he's done a really good job for this district."

Mr. Mayfield and Rep. Fleischmann appeared together at a press conference at the Doubletree Hotel on Chestnut Street.

He will be the honorary chairman for the Fleischmann campaign.  He said he does not expect to go on the campaign trail very often.  

Rep. Fleischmann called it "an honor" to get the endorsement.  

Weston Wamp, son of former 3rd District Congressman Zach Wamp, is again running against Rep. Fleischmann.

Roy Exum: Abused By An EpiPen

It is a good guess that for about 30 years I have kept an EpiPen on the top of my refrigerator. I have never had to open the box, much less jab a dose of life-saving epinephrine into a person suffering from anaphylaxis. Whether it is a bee sting, peanut butter, shellfish or other allergies, I watched somebody come within inches of dying in my early 20s and swore I would have one ... (click for more)
