Two Tennessee Democrats announced bids against Congressional incumbents this week, with a third mulling a potential run, the Nashville Post and Nooga.com report. A 64-year-old Knoxville psychologist, Joshua Williams, has announced his plans to seek the 2nd District Congressional seat currently held by Rep. Jimmy Duncan. Dr. Danielle Mitchell, a primary care and sports medicine physician in Chattanooga, will challenge Rep. Chuck Fleischmann for the 3rd District spot. Seventh District incumbent Marsha Blackburn of Franklin confirmed today her plans to seek reelection, while a Williamson County-based former Amazing Race contestant, Justin Kanew, has filed to run for Blackburn’s seat but hasn’t officially confirmed he will campaign against her.
