Sen. Mae Beavers, R-Mt. Juliet, will resign her seat in the state legislature in order to focus full-time on campaigning for governor, the Tennessean reports. The move will trigger a special election for the 17th District position. Current state Rep. Mark Pody, R-Lebanon, has already expressed interested in running. Beavers, who has been in the Senate since 2002, announced her bid for governor back in June.
