Andy Holt eyes challenge to Corker

State Rep. Andy Holt tells The Tennessean he’s considering a 2018 run for the U.S. Senate seat now held by fellow Republican Bob Corker.

The legislator from Dresden cited a poll commissioned by Tennessee Star as indicating Corker has waning support from Republican primary voters. (Note: It found 41 percent support for Corker and about the same percentage favoring “someone else.” See previous post HERE.)

“I’ve had countless people contact me. People I respect. People with resources,” Holt said.

…”I owe it to the people who have given me support over the years to consider it, and that’s exactly what I’m doing,” Holt said.

Holt said he has not set a timeline for his decision, saying it is “too early in the process for that.”
