Ramsey Helps Gardenhire Raise $10K

Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey headlined a Chattanooga fundraiser Monday for state Senate Republican nominee Todd Gardenhire, reports Chris Carroll.
In return for a $250 suggested donation, several Republican elected officials and a few dozen supporters heard speeches, rubbed elbows and enjoyed a multicourse meal at the downtown Mountain City Club.
The Gardenhire campaign didn’t fill up the dozen or so tables it reserved, but a staffer said the lunchtime meeting likely exceeded a goal of $10,000.
The fundraiser and public show of Republican unity stands in contrast to the situation Gardenhire’s 10th Senate District opponent finds himself battling.
Democratic nominee and Chattanooga City Councilman Andra√© McGary in a Sunday Times Free Press story lamented the fact that the seat’s sitting Democrat, Sen. Andy Berke, won’t endorse him.
