Last full day of campaigning is underway
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The barrage of television ads and campaigning in Tennessee is heading into its last full day before Tuesday's vote.
With the last remaining hours ticking away, candidates for U.S. Senate, governor and the state Legislature are making their final pitches, as are the supporters and opponents of four proposed constitutional amendments going before the voters.
In the Senate race, incumbent Republican Lamar Alexander faces Democrat Gordon Ball in what has been a largely negative campaign on both sides. That race stands in contrast to Republican Gov. Bill Haslam's bid for a second term, which has seen little in the way of organized campaigning by Democratic challenger Charlie Brown.
Voters will also decide on constitutional amendments concerning abortion, judicial selection, the state income tax and charitable gaming for veterans groups.
