Haslam Meets with Pence to Discuss Possible U.S. Senate Bid

Former Gov. Bill Haslam met with Vice President Mike Pence at the White House this week as the Knoxville Republican continues eyeing a potential run for the U.S. Senate, Knoxnews reports. Haslam has been mulling a run for the upper chamber since U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander announced in December he would not seek re-election. He previously said he would announce his decision in the early months of 2019. Other Republicans weighing a Senate bid include U.S. Ambassador to Japan Bill Hagerty, orthopedic trauma surgeon Manny Sethi and U.S. Rep. Mark Green, R-Clarksville. Nashville attorney and Iraq War veteran James Mackler is the only Democrat to enter the race so far.
