As the Fiscal Cliff can has been kicked down the road a couple of blocks, 2013 rings in the beginning of the 2014 election cycle. Vacation over.
Third-term TN State Senator Jim Tracy (R-Shelbyville) officially announces his US 4th Congressional District candidacy in Murfreesboro today, January 2 @ 11am. Sen. Tracy is the first official candidate for the seat. Several more are in the wings. Although the current incumbent, Dr. Scott Desjarlais, has indicated that he will run again for the seat, a seat that he won by double digits in 2012, speculation still remains whether he will challenge moderate US Senator Lamar Alexander or return to his medical practice, free from the carnivorous life of politics.
Let the fun begin. Who is next?
