Marco Rubio (l); Donald Trump
The contest for the 2016 Republican nomination for president is prompting people down our way to choose sides.
Former Chattanooga-based congressman Zach Wamp, who ran a strong GOP primary race for Governor in 2010, will be at Owen Brennan’s Restaurant on Poplar Avenue at 6 p.m. Monday to announce plans for the Tennessee campaign of Florida U.S. Senator Marco Rubio.
And Memphis-area Tea Party leader and broadcaster Mark Skoda has come forth as an enthusiastic supporter of mega-entrepreneur Donald Trump, who continues to be the poll leader among Republican aspirants.
Skoda has a new Facebook site entitled “Tennessee 4 Trump.”
You can be sure that more news of this sort, about this or that contender, will be coming in advance of Tennessee’s presidential-primary date on March 1, 2016, “Super Tuesday.”
