Eastern TN Rep. May Seek Governor Spot

Nashville, TN – Tennessee Republican Representative Zach Wamp says he wants to launch his gubernatorial campaign as early as next month if former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist decides not to seek the GOP nomination. The eastern Tennessee congressman told reporters today he is already assembling a campaign team in the event that Frist does not run. Frist has said he will decide on a bid early in 2010. Incumbent Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen can't run again because of term limits.
