Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett and former long-time sheriff, Tim Hutchison, were spotted at Wright's Cafeteria Thursday during lunch time. What they talked about, however, appears to be a mystery, but the story goes that Burchett actually called Hutch.
When asked whether Hutch, who lost to Burchett in the GOP primary in 2010 for the mayor's post, talked about a potential run at the newly-created 89th District in the Tennessee State House, the mayor declined to comment.
Actually, when I asked him about anything, he declined to comment, which isn't typical of the mayor.
Course that might have had something to do with the Metal Shed on the Hill's editorial about former Law Director Richard Beeler. (And no, I'm not on the editorial board.)
Regardless, we'll know soon. The qualifying deadline is April 5.
