CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — State Rep. Joe Carr describes himself on his campaign website as a farmer and small businessman, but a financial disclosure form filed on Friday shows most of Carr's income last year came from his salary and per diem allowances as a member of the Tennessee House of Representatives.

The Lascassas Republican who is hoping to defeat Sen. Lamar Alexander listed a salary from the state of a little over $28,000. He earned just over $2,000 from cattle sales and another $19,000 as a consultant for a Murfreesboro automotive repair company.

Carr says in his campaign website that he and his wife own Cedar Snag Farm, but he did not list the farm among his assets.

The media could not reach Carr for comment.
