An era comes to a stunning end.

John Shelton Wilder has been defeated for re-election as Lieutenant Governor. He lost 18-15 to Gooper Ron Ramsey of Blountville. The end came when Democrat Rosalind Kurita, a friend of this blogger, and then Mike Williams of Maynardville, a Republican who had voted for Wilder in the past, voted for Ramsey and ended Wilder's 36 year reign in the state's Number 2 position.

I never thought it would happen, but it has. More later while I get my wits together.
