More than a thousand Tennessee Republicans gathered in Nashville’s new Music City Center Friday night for the annual GOP Statesman’s Dinner. The event brought in almost half a million dollars for the party, which controls both chambers of the state legislature, both of Tennessee’s U.S. Senate seats, and seven of the state’s nine Congressional districts, as well as the governor’s office.

Daniel Potter thinks the term 'general assignment' is a bland way to say he's brought back national reports from places like inside a man-made cave built to save endangered bats, a room where police store confiscated meth labs, and from the Grand Ole Opry while hundreds of evacuated hotel guests snoozed in the pews.
