Bryson Remains Optimistic Despite Dismal Poll Numbers

Franklin, Tenn. (AP) -- If Jim Bryson is worried about poll numbers, he's not letting on.

The Republican Gubernatorial Candidate is still traveling around Tennessee in what his staff has dubbed "the big bus," meeting potential voters.

Two recent polls show incumbent Governor Bredesen with a nearly three-to-one lead over Bryson. One showed that Bryson may not even have a lead over Bredesen among likely Republican voters.

Bryson, who was relatively unknown outside Middle Tennessee before entering the race, says he sees a lot of support as he's out talking with voters.

But with early voting beginning Wednesday, there's not much time for him to convince voters they should switch their support.
