Yesterday, Franklin Mayor Ken Moore (R) announced that he will not enter the open 7th Congressional District race, still leaving state Sen. Mark Green (R-Clarksville) as the only announced candidate. Earlier in the year, President Trump nominated Sen. Green as Secretary of the Army, but the latter man withdrew when problems arose surrounding his confirmation. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Brentwood) running for Senate leaves this western state Republican congressional district to be decided in the August Republican primary. A long time exists between now and the candidate filing deadline (will be set for a date in April), but Sen. Green obviously appears to be the man to beat in the early going.
