A lot of side senator from the fine state senator you decided not to back to anybody.
On war for the reason of trying I -- to stay above the for a day.
But also so watch this race closely.
Still that -- it still not back -- And.
No I'm not really there's a lot about these candidates -- like O'Neill and keep in my focus on the senate if we don't have a conservative majority in the senate.
It doesn't really matter who's in the White House we're gonna continue to lose ground so that's my focus feel -- about a lot of the candidates and I'm happy for them to stand with me on on issues I'm working on such as balancing the budget and some -- -- have done that during this campaign.
And so it's going to be close it's -- really interesting race I think people saw some things in the debate that they liked and didn't like about the candidates and not that change things in the last few days.
Certainly changed with conservatives to world who are desperate we're galvanize more senator.
What they were hearing -- -- Newt Gingrich and so far what they've heard.
Out of Mitt Romney now I -- might have taken -- lead to say the Greeneville is more conservative and other parts of the state.
But it is a Newt Gingrich stronghold is a non.
We'll Pringles my hometown and -- was my congressional district it it is conservative I think gimmick common sense why -- very much up fiscal conservatives are very worried about that the spending in the debt I think Romney saying the right things and you don't.
There's no question about that but I think what they saw from -- was some fight.
And when I travel around the state -- around the country.
What I hear from people is just -- -- fighting they know that there -- some powerful forces in the media and in Washington -- pushing our country over a -- they wanna make sure whoever we elect as president is ready to stand up and -- some pretty powerful people.
-- -- and powerful people within your own party's senators took a lot of them off by saying they were being handed.
In the in this budget Don lemon in the spending cuts that they have all -- and you really spell it out in your book but that is the reality is that.
It seems like.
Neither side wants to risk doing any thing -- -- to upset the apple cart.
So they're going to be conservative.
For the rest of the year in other words knocked about with any bold numbers are big cuts so we're going to be sitting on this throughout -- year and I get it right.
Well -- I think you're right but I think the low risk strategy is not gonna work because if we don't have a clear contrast with Obama a different direction a different attitude.
I don't think we're gonna beat him.
Because he's a great salesman not calling the world's best -- -- socialism and I believe that that's true we need someone who can sell free enterprise and prosperity.
And help Americans understand that when we are free as a nation and when we're decentralize politically that everyone's going to be better off so I think we've got to clear contrast if we just bring it up and I think our candidate whoever our nominee is is going to be the one who captures that energy and is willing to be forceful.
In bold about the those positions that they take.
You -- -- -- serious issues senators -- and how's this sound like a menu.
-- -- heaven for me I'm looking at it and it's upgraded my doctor wouldn't flip over but it sounds delicious.
But you make of the timing.
Of these guys getting there.
Minutes apart -- supposedly first Gingrich is gonna get there.
Then -- Romney was gonna get there Ronnie gets there close to an hour at a time.
We don't you -- you know what he's gonna stick around for when Gingrich gets there.
But what does that all about you know.
Every election that I have been and from a house and the senate on Election Day I've gone through Tommy -- ham house to shake hands when you we don't you don't think that's what we went.
I usually don't get much statement via a -- happy but -- it's it's.
It's really where you have to go through that and they're conservative voters who come out and if they're happy with it it is a fun experience.
If they're not happy with him on -- going to be so are you showed up.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Senator thank you very much very good very good having you.
