Two days ago, mainstream made a bit of comeback in GOP primaries when moderate Rick Snyder won the gubernatorial nomination in Michigan, and conservative Jerry Moran won the Senate nomination over the more conservative Todd Tiahrt in Kansas. Will today's Tennessee primary for governor—taking place on rare Thursday!—make it three in a row? As we mentioned earlier this week, three top Republicans are vying for the GOP gubernatorial nomination in the race to succeed term-limited Gov. Phil Bredesen (D). The three are Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam, Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, and Rep. Zack Wamp. (The fabulously great Basil Marceaux is also in the race.)
