    As I noted, it's from the Briggs campaign. Appearances can be deceiving, but Briggs' campaign seems to be built around advocating to elect him senator, and that organization has sent previous mailers suggesting such.

    Ahh, wasn't clear on that. You said you got something from "Advance Tennessee" as well. If their flyer had failed to call for voting for Briggs or against Camfield I could understand why. If Briggs' own flyer doesn't say to vote for him then I have to wonder who's doing his mailers. They aren't serving him well.

    That would be the freedom loving IRS you're talking about.

    My composition could have had greater clarity. The two mailers so far received from Advance Tennessee have not advocated voting for any candidate, merely noting that Campfield is the wrong choice for Tennessee.

    But Briggs' latest is purely anti-Stacey, with no call to action. Maybe they just got weary of it.

    It seems the kind of seismic shift we might experience is not the metaphorical sort:
