Maynard said he had never heard Herron endorse Obama during the election campaign.

He's a Old Time Southern Blue Dawg Crony Capitalist and a HYPOCRITE.... Look at Roy Herron's endorsements.
He also has an A rating from the NRA Gun Rights group and Routinely gets 100% marks from the Right to Life groups.... Sounds like a real "Dem" to me?
Read this endorsement he got... I heard he profits from the SAME Good Ole Boy network that Haslam leads....
"....The sharp contrast between campaign styles also favors Herron, a Dresden lawyer, minister and longtime Democratic General Assembly member who has disclosed much about his finances while Fincher, a farmer and gospel singer, has been secretive and unwilling to debate.
Herron has released his income tax returns, which show $232,032 in donations to charitable and religious causes in the past four years. That seems like a lot of money from a former preacher whose a local lawyer... His wife is a Commissioner with the State of Tennessee.... huh? Fincher has flouted the tradition most congressional candidates have followed for decades, offering the public only an incomplete account of his financial life.
On a mandated form, he listed a $250,000 loan from Gates Banking and Trust, where his father is on the board of directors, but no assets to cover it.
He reported income of about $60,000 despite a comfortable lifestyle that includes private schools for his children. In his primary battle, he offered little defense to criticism for receiving millions in federal farm subsidies while running against government spending and promising to "Plow Congress."......
The guys wife works for the State of Tennessee.... huh?
