Meet the conservative candidate trying to oust the establishment GOP in Tennessee

On August 7, Tennesseans will head to the polls in the Republican primary. Establishment GOP Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) faces a challenger in conservative Tennessee state representative Joe Carr. On radio this morning, Carr joined Glenn to talk about his campaign and the problem with the Republican establishment.

Carr currently has some momentum on his side. Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin (R) endorsed Carr on Wednesday. He also enjoys the support of conservative commentator Laura Ingraham and many Tea Party groups.

Alexander was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 2003, and he has made headlines for his questionable of support of legislation like the Gang of Eight immigration reform bill. Glenn asked Carr to outline why the people of Tennessee should vote for him over Alexander.

“Well, the Readers Digest version of that answer is that Lamar has been a United States senator for 12 years,” Carr said. “He was in the Bush White House as Education Secretary. He's ran for president, I don't know, two, three times… He's an old established Republican fixture on the national stage.”

“Unfortunately… the voters of Tennessee can't tell you anything that he's done – any laudable, notable achievement that he's done in the last 12 years unless you the fact he gave Tennesseans permission to fish below the dam,” he continued. “And I think Tennesseans, like a lot of Americans… are saying, ‘You know what? We have serious problems confronting our country, and we need serious people.’”

When it comes to immigration, Carr paints himself as the opposite of the incumbent and believes his track record speaks for itself.

“In the Tennessee General Assembly, I'm the author and architect of every major illegal immigration bill that’s currently on the books to the extent that Tennessee has some of the strongest, if not strongest, illegal immigration laws in the country at the state level,” Carr said. “I'm adamantly opposed and I find stand four square with men like [Sen.] Ted Cruz (R-TX), [Sen.] Jeff Sessions (R-AL) to deal with that problems, to assist the American worker and rule of law.”

Another area of concern is education. Alexander served as the United States Secretary of Education under President George H. W. Bush. The Senator has been outspoken in support of federal involvement in education. Carr said Alexander has largely deflected education and Common Core related questions on the campaign trail.

“[Alexander’s] audio would say - when we talk about Common Core - 'Let’s [not] talk about Common Core.' 'Let's talk about not having a national school board,'” Carr said. “So he obviously obfuscates the question and tries to deflect, but Tennesseans and Americans are wise to that kind of thing.”

Ultimately, Carr hopes Tennesseans will see Alexander’s “horrible record” and vote for a more conservative alternative.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
