A month after songwriter Lee Thomas Miller (R) announced for Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s (R-Brentwood) open Nashville suburban congressional seat, he ended his fledgling campaign. Saying he “would have to compromise too much of what he believed in” to run a successful campaign, Mr. Miller instead ended his quest. This leaves state Senator and physician Mark Green (R-Clarksville) as the leading contender. Sen. Green was President Trump’s choice for US Army Secretary, but was forced to withdraw when it appeared his nomination had confirmation trouble. When Rep. Blackburn decided to run for the Senate, Dr. Green then hopped into the open House race and appears quickly to becoming the early prohibitive favorite.
