Alexander Wins Nomination Easily

Sen. Lamar Alexander's (R-TN) "convincing win over his tea party challengers in Thursday's Republican primary sets up another battle the two-term incumbent is expected to win," the Tennessean reports.

"But even though the Tennessee Democratic Party remains undermanned compared with the state's dominant Republicans, it at least will have a candidate this fall who's not a national joke -- something the party couldn't say two years ago."

Roll Call: "His victory means no Republican senators have lost a primary challenge, ending the tea party's streak at two cycles. None of the remaining primaries feature a Republican senator."
