House District 67 to See Contested Democratic Primary

The race to replace Rep. Joe Pitts in the Tennessee State House will be contested, The Leaf-Chronicle reports. Jason Hodges, who received Pitts’ blessing, will face Houston Rye in the Democratic primary to represent the district, which covers most of Clarksville. The winner will go on to face Republican Tommy J. Vallejos in the general election. Pitts, a Democrat, served 12 years in the House before announcing his retirement last year.
