Wilder retiring?This is big news:
I just spoke with a source at the Capitol who is "in the know," and that source says that there has been no announcement today, but that the rumor in question is circulating. My guess would be that if there is truth to this, we'll hear more before the week is out.
…former Lt. Gov. and current West Tennessee State Senator John Wilder will announce that he will not seek re-election to the legislature next year. Wilder had previously stated that he would be running.
While predicting what moves Wilder will make is and has always been a tricky task, several sources have confirmed to NashvillePost.com that an announcement from the long-serving politician will come this week, possibly as early as today on the Senate floor.
