Trauma surgeon Manny Sethi says he's running for the GOP nomination for Tennessee's open U.S. Senate seat, the Associated Press reports. Sethi made the announcement today, months after Republican U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander said he was not seeking reelection in 2020. In the announcement video, the 41-year-old Sethi described himself as a conservative outsider who supports President Donald Trump. Democratic Nashville attorney and former Army helicopter pilot James Mackler is also running for the seat.
