Two Attorneys Lead Race for Democratic Senate Seat

After Sen. Doug Henry’s announcement yesterday that he will not seek re-election, Nashville politicos are looking ahead to a Democratic primary fight shaping up between Metro Councilman Jason Holleman and Jeff Yarbro. Holleman, a partner at Jones, Hawkins & Farmer law firm, confirmed he was running for the seat. Yarbo, who is with Bass, Berry & Sims, told the Tennessean he would make an announcement “when the time is right,” although many believe he will run again. In 2010, Yarbro lost to Henry by just 17 votes.
