Former Republican U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher has formally announced his intentions to run for the U.S. Senate seat that will be vacated by Sen. Bob Corker in 2018, The Tennessean reports. Fincher, from Frog Jump, represented Tennessee’s 8th Congressional District from 2011 to 2017. He will seek the Republican nomination for the position, for which he will have to go head-to-head with current Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, who already announced her plans to run. On the Democratic side, attorney James Mackler could potentially face off against Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke or former Gov. Phil Bredesen, who both are considering a bid.
