Strangely enough, Bill Hobbs received a call today from Lamar Alexander’s office for an interview. Strange because Hobbs had requested an interview weeks if not months ago. But all of the sudden there it was today at the last minute. It couldn’t have anything to do with last Saturday? Could it?
It’s about a 15 minute phone interview. Most of what Alexander said about the immigration bill wasn’t a surprise. There was no commitment from Alexander to vote against S.1348 although I don’t think Hobbs has the total interview available yet. Regarding the meet and greet in Cookeville, Alexander said there were only 20 unhappy people there. I do believe that was an understatement. Although I have heard people say there were 200 people in attendance I think it was closer to 100 people. But of those 100 people, I’d say 90 of them were extremely unhappy with Alexander and what he had to say about the immigration bill. He did admit he was surprised by the response and the people at the meet and greet. People drove in from all over the state. Alexander attributed this to talk radio [read: Steve Gill]. Alexander said he has been doing these county meetings around the state but I don’t recall one for Williamson County. I’m pretty sure I would have heard unless it was only for county party officials and even then I probably would have heard about it.
Go listen and tell me what your reaction is to Alexander’s responses about the immigration bill.
