Jackson Baker of the Memphis Flyer reports that Marsha Blackburn, Republican representative of Tennessee’s 7th U.S. Congressional District, will face an opponent in the Republican primary this year.

Blackburn is known for opposing fairness and equality for GLBT citizens. Perhaps, Leatherwood will offer an alternative to District Seven voters.
