NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — TV airwaves are clogged with attack ads in the Republican U.S. Senate primary in Tennessee days ahead of the election.

Bill Hagerty and a super PAC supporting him are making claims about Manny Sethi for research and previous comments on Obamacare and for his youth violence prevention study.

Sethi and a super PAC on his side are needling Hagerty for a previous board position with a publisher of Common Core materials.

The back and forth has heightened ahead of Thursday’s primary election.

The two are hoping to replace outgoing GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander, who’s retiring from the position at the end of the year.
