Liberadio(!) Interview On Potential Jim Cooper Primary Challenge

Liberadio(!), with Mary Mancini and Freddie O'Connell, interviewed Accountability Now PAC Executive Director Ben Tribbett this morning on the potential primary challenge to Blue Dog Jim Cooper.

You can also listen to the interview over at Cooper Uncovered. Here's an excerpt:

"The polling suggests that [Cooper]'s more vulnerable now among Democrats than he is among Republicans or Independents, and I think that doesn't bode well for him when there's a Republican primary for governor on the same day as this election would be, because a lot of Republicans that are happy with his job performance are going to opt into their own primary for governor, and he's going to have to rely on Democrats to win this primary. And if the Democrats aren't happy with him, he's not going to survive a strong primary challenge."
