FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) — Republican Bill Haslam says there should be little mystery about where he stands on major issues like Medicaid expansion and Common Core educations standards as he runs for a second term as Tennessee governor against nominal Democratic opposition.

Haslam, who faces politically unknown Democrat Charlie Brown in next month's election, said during a weekend visit to a chili cook-off in Franklin that he sees little need to hammer home his policy positions in order to claim a mandate after what is expected to be his re-election by a wide margin.

In the governor's words: "Is there any secret where I stand on things?"

Big issues facing Haslam in a second term would likely include Common Core education standards, Medicaid expansion and a possible gas tax hike.
