TN Politics: Concerns Over Early Voting and Police Overtime

Jun 29, 2018

Political analyst Otis Sanford joins us to discuss several headlines from the past week. The first concerns Shelby County Democrats' objection to the Agricenter being the sole polling place open for the first four days of early voting. Sanford believes the concerns to be valid, as there is much media attention on the first few days of voting, and the location near Shelby Farms is inaccessible to many who rely on public transportation. Next, some thoughts on the recent question of whether $200,000 in police overtime pay is justified in providing security for Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland. 

Gubernatorial candidates exchanged views on school vouchers and charter schools in recent debates. Finally, will next week be quiet on the campaign trail, or can we expect some fireworks?
