Jim Tracy To Run For District 6 Congress

State Senator Jim Tracy

State Sen. Jim Tracy, R-Shelbyville, is expected to announce today during a press conference in Murfreesboro that he will challenge U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais, R-Tenn., in the 2014 Republican primary.
According to a Republican with close ties to Tracy, the 56-year-old insurance agency owner has scheduled a news conference Wednesday morning in Murfreesboro where he will formally declare he is running.
Tracy will become the first Republican to declare he is running against DesJarlais, who touts his anti-abortion positions but has been caught up in a personal scandal surrounding affairs he conducted with at least two patients in 2000
