Best Comeback

A.J. McCall

When last we saw the scion of the Wilson County appliance empire, he was running for the state House when someone unearthed his DUI arrest records, documenting a drunken attempt to coax a lady into his van in a Walmart parking lot. Oops. That didn't stop ol' A.J., though—he's back for more this year running for state Senate. Several Republican legislators hosted a fundraiser for him, even though he's running a primary challenge against one of their own, Rep. Susan Lynn. So while it's no slamdunk McCall will reach the state Senate, the fact that he has convinced the GOP powerbrokers to let him give it another whirl is a comeback story in and of itself. A.C.
