The Tennessee Senate race features an incumbent Republican going up against numerous primary opponents. Of these opponents, only Zack Poskevich and Brenda Lenard have put forth statements of their positions on issues. As with most contests featuring an incumbent, this race is likely to see Senator Corker win the primary easily.
The Democratic side of the race seems to be a complete tossup. Dave Hancock is a State Senator who seems to be putting forth no effort in the primary, including no website. Other candidates include actress Park Overall. The lack of action on the Democratic side seems to indicate that the seat isn't worth challenging.
