Wil­li­ams on Face­book: “Just got a call from Speak­er Beth Har­well to let me know she is run­ning for Gov­ernor next year too!”

“Har­well has more than $1 mil­lion in a cam­paign ac­count she can draw on to run for gov­ernor. She has openly stated she’s look­ing at a race, and many ex­pect her to run.” (Chat­tanooga Times Free Press)

ALL-STAR. Former Nashville May­or Karl Dean (D) “has named the top mem­bers of his cam­paign team,” in­clud­ing Court­ney Wheel­er as cam­paign man­ager, Fred Yang as poll­ster, Mark Put­nam for ad­vert­ising, Demo­crat­ic fun­draiser Charles Robert Bone as fin­ance chair­man, and Calv­in An­der­son as cam­paign treas­urer.
