While one campaign season has ended, others are about to crank up.
Not only is this a presidential election year, but there’s also a heated state senate campaign on the horizon.
Republican Ken Yager and Democrat Becky Ruppe are running to fill the 12th District state senate seat being vacated by Tommy Kilby.
The two candidates stumped through Roane County last Thursday, even though they were unopposed in the state primary.
Some pundits say the race has the potential to turn bitter.
