Former Memphis Senator Reggie Tate, 65, Dies

Former Memphis state senator Reggie Tate has died. He was found dead in his home this morning, the Commercial Appeal reports. The Shelby County Democrat, who was defeated in an August 2018 primary, was 65. Ken Jobe, spokesman for the House Democratic Caucus, said it appeared Tate had died of natural causes. "We carried meaningful legislation together that made a difference in the lives of many across the state of TN," tweeted Rep. Antonio Parkinson, a fellow Memphis Democrat who described Tate as a friend. "He always made us smile when he was around. He will be missed."
