Marsha Blackburn Is Hard To Reach - And Response

Friday, October 13, 2017

Well Roy, I nearly always agree with you but your post regarding Blackburn made me stop and think.  In "another lifetime" I knew Walker trainers and was sick over the tactics they used on such beautiful animals.  You and I totally agree on that subject but I was completely unaware of Marsha Blackburn's stance. 

I tried to e-mail her today....no e-mail address.  I decided to use her "contact me" form...can't do it, I don't "live in her district".  Went to her FB page, can't send a message.  The only thing left is a phone number to her offices BUT I'm borderline MAD.  If she wants to replace Bob that means I'm definitely in "her district" but I reckon that's somewhere down the road.

I'm gonna have to look around at who else may be thinking about running so that I can gather up some information.  Any ideas?
