The Tennessee GOP and former chief of staff Mark Winslow have settled a lawsuit over the public disclosure of his severance pay after he left the party.

State Party Chairman Chris Devaney calls the agreement "amicable" and says he looked forward to putting the episode behind the party. Terms were not disclosed.

Tennessee Republicans have elected Chris Devaney to a third term as chairman of the party’s executive committee. He was re-elected without opposition at their Saturday meeting. Devaney was first tapped for the position to complete the unexpired term of his predecessor Robin Smith, who left to make an unsuccessful bid for Congress in 2009.
