Tate Gets Democrats' Senate Nod 

Architect Reginald Tate on Thursday night was named Democratic nominee for the District 33 state Senate seat vacated for "health reasons" two weeks ago by Tennessee Waltz indictee Kathryn Bowers. Tate, buoyed by a solid bloc of votes from members of the Shelby County Democratic Party's "Chism faction" (after political broker/Shelby County Commissioner Sidney Chism), defeated four other applicants for the position. His nearest competitor was veteran county employee Ed Stanton Jr., father of recent congressional hopeful Ed Stanton III. Tate will be heavily favored over Republican Michael Floyd in November.
