Every candidate tries to find an open lane in a crowded primary, but The Tennessee Star tipline yielded this recent photo of an appearance by Wilson County Commissioner Dan Walker at a gathering of the Wilson County Conservatives that seems to suggest he’s decided the “Never Trump” lane is wide open in his race against State Rep. Susan Lynn (R-Mt. Juliet) and Jeremy Hayes in the 2018 Republican primary for the 57th District in the Tennessee House of Representatives.
Appearing at an event this Saturday hosted by State Rep. Mark Pody (R-Lebanon) just one day after Senator John McCain (R-AZ) tanked the “skinny” Obamacare repeal his fellow Republicans fully expected him to support, Walker showed up wearing a 2008 McCain-Palin shirt.
One attendee said: “It was intended to give the ‘finger’ to Trump and his supporters.”
The Star would be delighted to publish Mr. Walker’s explanation for his sartorial selection on Saturday.
