The head of the Nashville Songwriters Association International, Lee Thomas Miller (R), filed an exploratory committee with the Federal Election Commission, which allows him to raise money for a purported federal campaign. Mr. Miller is a well-known country songwriter and joins the race for the seat being vacated by veteran Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s (R-Brentwood) run for the Senate. The 7th District is safely Republican, occupying the rural and suburban areas west and south of Nashville, encompassing all or parts of 17 counties. So far, only state Sen. Mark Green (R-Clarksville) has officially declared his candidacy.
