Fmr. TN Governor Phil Bredesen Will Reportedly Announce US Senate Run Thursday

Fmr. TN Governor Phil Bredesen Will Reportedly Announce US Senate Run Thursday

There's a major development in Tennessee's U.S. Senate race.

Three sources confirmed the Democrat's candidacy, as first reported by the Nashville Post, on Wednesday.

In October, political analyst Charlie Cook of The Cook Political report said Tennessee's Senate race would become a toss-up if Bredesen runs and that the seat would likely remain Republican if he did not.

Earlier this fall, the former Tennessee governor indicated he was mulling over a run and his decision included meeting with U.S. Senate Democrat leader Chuck Schumer in Washington.

The 45-year-old actor will next be seen in " Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle ", alongside Kevin Hart , Jack Black and Karen Gillan. Besides the flicks, the Rock also stars in HBO's Ballers , which is produced by his own Seven Bucks Productions.

Nashville lawyer James Mackler, a 45-year-old Iraq War veteran, also has announced his candidacy as a Democrat, meaning that if Bredesen joins the race he will have at least one primary opponent.

U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, former Congressman Stephen Fincher and Dr. Rolando Toyos have all announced their intentions to seek the GOP nomination.

Bredesen, who served two terms and left office with strong approval ratings in 2010, gives Democrats a well-connected and well-liked candidate who likely has a singular ability to win in the Republican-heavy state.
