After expressing interest in replacing the resigning Rep. Gerald McCormick, R-Chattanooga, yesterday, Robin Smith has confirmed that she will run for the Republican nomination for State House District 26, the Times Free Press reports. Smith, a former chair of the state Republican Party, will run with the support of Tony Sanders and Hamilton County Commissioner Greg Martin, who also expressed interest yesterday but agreed that only one would submit their name for consideration. McCormick made the surprise announcement that he would resign on Oct. 1 and drop his name from the primary ballot earlier this week.
