Knoxville District Attorney General Randy Nichols, a dark-horse Democratic candidate for governor, rode hard in Memphis this last week, basing his campaign in the Bluff City from Monday through Sunday and meeting as many people as possible. Here he chatted up local supporters Chuck Lurie and Greg Lehman at a Sunday brunch at the Espresso Cafe on Poplar. State Rep. Carol Chumney sat down to a "soul supper" Saturday with supporters Coleman Thompson and Phronda Burks-Turner at Burks'home.
