Bright & Early: Governor Phil To Governor Bill Edition

Good morning, Nashville. The barrage of robocalls and campaign commercials is finally over, Election Day went off (mostly) without a hitch, and our new governor-elect is Bill Haslam, who raked in nearly double the votes that his Democratic opponent did. Weirdly enough, this guy came in third while Crazy Man James checked in near the bottom. Meanwhile Republicans gained enough ground in the state House of Representatives to take control, meaning that they now control both chambers and the governor’s seat for the first time since the Civil War.
