Kanew’s Republican opponent in the race is Sen. Mark Green, who currently represents a district in Clarksville in the state house.
Meanwhile, Johnson’s opponent in his race is Democrat Kristen Grimm, a first time political candidate whose focus is healthcare and education.
GOOD NEWS: We’re finally having a debate/forum here in #TN7.
BAD NEWS: It’s with a different state senator than the one I’m running against, for some odd reason. (Hint: he’s still ducking me 🦆) pic.twitter.com/DpHaTnnFtH
