One of local politics’ most eligible (and idiosyncratic) bachelors is single no more. Two weeks ago David Kustoff-- he of the 3:30 a.m. early risings and the one-meal-a-day regimen-- eloped to Gatlinsburg with the former Roberta Nevil, a lawyer like himself.

After a brief honeymoon in the East Tennessee resort town, Kustoff (the male version) went right back to work as campaign manager for the U.S. Senate campaign of Lamar Alexander (due for a Memphis fundraiser Thursday, with Vice President Dick Cheney as the guest of honor).

A former chairman of the Shelby County Republican Party and director of the succeessful Bush presidential effort in Tennessee in 2000, David Kustoff finished second behind Nashville’s Marsha Blackburn in the just-concluded six-candidate Republican primary for Congress in the 7th District.
