Ford Zigs Home, Blasts Polls, Zags Out 

Jetting back and forth across the state of Tennessee on Saturday, U.S. Senate Democratic nominee Harold Ford found time to make a quick trip to Memphis for a press conference-cum-rally at the intersection of Poplar and Highland. “This is home,” Rep. Ford said. “You want the people who’ve worked with you, who’ve prayed with you the most to be there.” Alongside him was a brand new endorser, Collierville mayor Linda Kerley. Ford used the occasion to cast doubt on "public polls" showing GOP opponent Bob Corker ahead. For more, go to "Political Beat".
