Larry Crim, Democratic Candidate for U.S. Senate, said, "The problem in Washington in general and Tennessee's current senator in particular is disconnection. The answer to disconnection is connection."

He said a U.S. senator "cannot represent Tennesseans without talking with Tennesseans - a public service role incumbent Senator Lamar Alexander has long overlooked." 

Mr. Crim said, "Everywhere I go I hear from and speak with Tennesseans who rightfully feel they are getting the shaft on the cuts to their social security. Among the thousands of Tennesseans I have spoken with over two years.

"There is nothing more certain than that our citizens deserve and are demanding a bill like I'm advocating to stop government from borrowing against the social security trust fund and cutting their benefits they've paid for all their lives. If Tennesseans elect me to the U.S. Senate, I promise there are no bills I will fight harder for than a Social Security Protection Act and Veterans Benefit Assurance Act."

Crim campaign spokesperson Robert New said, "Larry Crim has been reaching out to Tennesseans on the campaign trail for two years in his quest to reach the people in all 95 counties of Tennessee and is well on his way to completing this important task."

Please Don't Close The Piccadilly Cafeteria At Hamilton Place - And Response

Oh, no.
