House Speaker Pro Tem Bill Dunn, R-Knoxville, announced today he will not seek re-election in 2020, the Nashville Post reports. Dunn led the House after Speaker Glen Casada’s resignation in August and until the House could return to Nashville to elect Republican Cameron Sexton of Crossville as its new speaker. The longest-tenured Republican in the House, Dunn has been a strong advocate for school choice. He successfully shepherded an education savings account bill through the House this year and said it was time to conclude his public service “on a high note.”
