Renee Hoyos, the executive director of the Tennessee Clean Water Network, has declared an intent to run for Congress in the 2nd District seat, currently occupied by Rep. John J. “Jimmy” Duncan Jr., the Nashville Post reports. Hoyos is the second Democrat to seek the position, and her entering the race will force a primary with candidate Joshua Williams. The winner will face one of four Republicans vying for the seat: state Rep. Jimmy Matlock (R-Lenoir City), Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett, Ken Gross and Brad Fullington.
