‘Hillbilly’ to Face Tennessee Incumbent

Meet Charles V. “Charlie” Brown, a self-described “redneck hillbilly” who just won the Democratic nomination for governor in Tennessee and will take on incumbent Republican Bill Haslam in November. The 72-year-old’s main platform? “The main thing is to get the bible back in school in Tennessee,” he told Buzzfeed. “A class where kids can go to—it’s free. Voluntary.” Brown is a National Rifle Association supporter (“What about them guns that Obama is sending overseas? They take our guns. Every person could be able to conceal carry. Over there they can come over here and kill us”). And he has gone on record saying that he wants to electrocute the current governor of Tennessee. Oh, and he loves Duck Dynasty.
