Gloria Johnson is an incumbent member of the Tennessee House of Representatives. She’s engaged in a reelection battle with Eddie Smith. And with Alabama traveling to Knoxville, Smith just took off the gloves when it comes to East Tennessee political campaigns. He compared Gloria Johnson to Lane Kiffin in a mailed political ad that just went out to voters.
The ad features a picture of Lane Kiffin, with a subtle Alabama A in the background, alongside Gloria Johnson.
Emblazoned in bright letters are the following slogans:
“It’s time to show big talkers like Lane Kiffin and Gloria Johnson that we mean business.”
“Like Lane Kiffin, who made a lot of big promises to Tennesseans, Gloria Johnson went to Nashville claiming she was going to reform health care and create jobs. And like Lane Kiffin, Gloria Johnson didn’t live up to her word.”
Gloria Johnson, a Tennessee grad, has only one possible response to swing the election back in her favor. She has to connect her opponent, Eddie Smith, with the only man less popular than Lane Kiffin in the state of Tennessee — Derek Dooley.
Update: Gloria Johnson has been endorsed by former Tennessee player and head coach Johnny Majors.
