railroading john wilder

Bill Hobbs casts Sen. Joe Haynes’ attempt at the Lieutenant Governor’s chair as an opportunity for bipartisanship in Tennessee’s upper chamber. Certainly, there are ample reasons why even partisan Democrats would want to remove Wilder from control after more than a third-of-a-century in power, and for the good of Tennessee work with Republicans to replace him.

However, there is also a very partisan incentive for Democrats to support Haynes:

In the not unlikely event that John Wilder is indicted for bank fraud, he would be forced to step down from his leadership role, creating a powerful vacancy in the midst of the session. Attempting to replace Wilder with another Democrat–especially if by then, Senators Cooper or Crutchfield own the title prefix “ex”–might be far more difficult than it is now.
