GOP candidate Scottie Mayfield focusing on win first

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN. (Times Free Press) -- A video posted online Wednesday shows GOP candidate Scottie Mayfield saying he must get elected to Congress before he elaborates on what he wants to do there.

"Until you get on a committee, it's really hard to get too focused," he told the College Republicans at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. "Quite honestly, I've got a file in my file cabinet that's 'When I Get There.' I haven't really focused on that because I've got to get there first."

Mayfield was responding to a student's question about "two or three things" he'd like to accomplish in Washington.

A McMinn County dairy executive, Mayfield is challenging U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann in Tennessee's 3rd Congressional District Republican primary.
