Democrat Adams Touts Outsider Status In Senate Bid
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Knoxville attorney Terry Adams is touting his status as a political outsider in his bid for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate.
Adams, who was a quartermaster in the Navy before going to college and law school, told reporters in Nashville on Friday that he wants to champion veterans issues and to keep what he calls a career politician from holding the seat for another six years.
Adams runs a seven-attorney law firm and owns a title company in Knoxville. He told reporters in Nashville on Friday that he was motivated to run in part to avoid a repeat of the 2012 primary won by an anti-gay candidate who was quickly disavowed by the Democratic Party.
The incumbent is Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander, a former two-term governor.
