Womack enjoyed a big lead in the first primary. But the Hutchinson Family Machine and related conservative Republican interests have rallied to Bledsoe's side. Who'll win? Readers?
I'll venture this: A Womack win would create a congressman (presuming November victory) independent of the old crowd in the state GOP. In the long run, I think this would grow the party, not hurt it. I'd also venture this: If it happens, I like the odds of Womack being the Republican nominee for governor in 2014.
