Karl Rove Says Memphis is a "Smart Buy"


Memphis got a plug of sorts from an unlikely source Thursday.

Writing in The Wall Street Journal, Karl Rove, former senior adviser to President Bush, said Memphis "may be a smart buy" for candidates in the "Super Tuesday primaries on February 5th. Tennessee and Arkansas are both Super Tuesday states, and Memphis television stations reach audiences in both states.

Candidates, Rove said, "will spend their limited dollars on TV stations that deliver the largest number of likely supporters at the least cost."

Let the record show that the Memphis Flyer also reaches a wide audience and welcomes the dollars of Republican and Democratic candidates alike.
