One of The Tennessee Star’s cameras captured this interesting photograph at the annual Williamson County Republican Party BBQ in Thompson’s Station on Saturday:
As The Star reported earlier, Williamson County businessman Bill Lee won the straw poll at the event with 63 percent of the votes cast. State Senator Mae Beavers (R-Mt. Juliet) finished a surprising second with 26 percent of the vote, followed by Rep. Diane Black (R-TN-06) with 7 percent of the vote, Tennessee House Speaker Beth Harwell (R-Nashville), with 3 percent, and Knoxville businessman Randy Boyd with 1 percent.
House Majority Leader State Rep. Glen Casada (R-Franklin) was there and participated in the straw poll.
Take a close look at the second jar on the table where Majority Leader Casada is dropping in his red gumball.
In front of the second jar is the name Congresswoman Diane Black.
The name of Speaker Beth Harwell, who announced her candidacy for governor on Sunday, is in front of the fourth jar.
