Dem Oppo Research for Former Crutchfield Seat

Here's an interesting thing. Someone at Global Strategy Group has hit this site several times in the past couple of days due to their internet searches on names that have been floated as possible Democratic candidates to replace Ward Crutchfield.

My first thought was that Republicans were performing research on their opponent pool, but a second glance at Global Strategy Group suggests otherwise. (Political junkies just uttered a collective "Duh, Joe.")

So, then the question became: who has hired this firm to do research on Andrew Berke, Don Loftis, and JoAnne Favors? Is there another Democrat eying the race? (Yes, South Pittsburg mayor Mike Killian is, but I somehow doubt it's him.) Or was it perhaps on behalf of one of the above? Here is the list of search terms:

tennessee lawyer berke
don loftis
joanne favors
voting record joanne favors tennessee
tenncare joanne favors

Compare the above list to the list in this post.

According to their website, Global Strategy has the following clients in the Volunteer State:

Governor Ned McWherter
Congressman John Tanner

I don't know, but those don't pop out as likely employers for this occasion. What do you think?
