The Alexander for Senate campaign today released the following statement on a bus tour launched by Senator Alexander's Democrat opponent:

"Just last week, Senator Alexander and Mr. Ball met at the Tennessee Farm Bureau forum, and Mr. Ball knows all too well what a good exchange of views they had," campaign spokesman Brian Reisinger said. "Once again, Gordon Ball is trying to distract Tennesseans from the fact that he'd be one more vote for the Obama agenda on Obamacare, guns, unions, life and taxes."
