Haslam, Bergmann Get a Little Help from Friends Alexander and Corker

Corker’s visit to Bergmann’s East Memphis headquarters on Wednesday was sandwiched in between another Memphis stop and an evening visit to Henning for an appearance with Haslam, 8th District GOP nominee Stephen Fincher and other Republican notables. The senator made sure to offer a tribute to Bergmann, whose rhetoric runs to Tea Party concepts, and praised her for “running on principle,” saying further, “The platform she is running on is the platform that has energized and, in many ways, transformed America.” And, in a Q and A with reporters afterward, he said that he made an endorsement on Bergmann’s website “a long time ago.”
But Corker’s emphasis, both in body language and verbally, was more generalized than is generally the case with such encounters.
