THE GROFF/ELLISON POLITICAL REPORT

Tinker Tapped

Posted in Uncategorized by groffellison on May 30, 2008

Democratic primary challenger Nikki Tinker was endorsed by the powerful, influential and wealthy EMILY’S List.  Tinker, who is challenging Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) for the seat that covers Memphis, ran two years ago when the seat was vacated by former Cong. Harold Ford who choose to run for the United States Senate. 

The endorsement is seen as critical since it adds gravitas and money to female candidates running for federal office.  The financial assistance will help Tinker since Cohen has outraised her by over $200,000.

The group endorsed Tinker during her last run as well.
