The deadline for applying to become Tennessee's next attorney general is noon tomorrow, but anyone still on the fence about whether to join the fray won't have the benefit of sizing up the competition first, the Memphis Daily News reports. Under a policy set by the state Supreme Court, the names of applicants won't be released until after the noon application deadline has passed. Incumbent Attorney General Bob Cooper, whose term expires at the end of the month, and Republican state Sen. Doug Overbey of Maryville are the only candidates who have publicly announced their candidacies.
