State Rep. Judd Matheny (R-Tullahoma), who previously declared he would run for U.S. Congress only if incumbent Rep. Diane Black did not seek reelection, has announced he will run for the 6th District seat regardless, Humphrey on the Hill reports. Matheny said in a statement that he believes the “federal government must not be allowed to dictate Tennessee’s definition of marriage, our bathroom policies or the makings of a school lunch.” He promises to hire a full time staffer in Nashville to work with the Tennessee General Assembly on a day-to-day basis.
