In a statement this week, State Sen. Mae Beavers formally announced she is running for re-election. No real news there, as there'd be no indication she'd not, but the statement included a new logo for the Wilson County legislator, which is awesome:
House Speaker Beth Harwell reportedly broke her arm while working out at the YMCA over the weekend, according to her spokeswoman Kara Owen.
This isn't the first time the Nashville Republican has found herself at the end of the legislative session nursing a broken bone. Exactly two years ago Wednesday, Harwell broke her ankle while walking her dog. She was back in time to preside over the legislative session that night, and the General Assembly adjourned a little more than a week later.
Jim Summerville says after the recent Supreme Court ruling upholding a Michigan law prohibiting race-based admission standards, he'll make another push to enact similar laws here.
Mary Mancini, candidate for State Senate in District 21, announced that she has been endorsed by Progressive Majority, a national organization dedicated to identifying and electing strong progressive candidates at the state and local level.
"Mary Mancini is the clear progressive choice in Senate District 21 and Progressive Majority is excited to stand with her as she works to make the people of Tennessee the legislature’s number-one priority," said Gloria Totten, president of Progressive Majority. "Mary’s strong support of progressive values, ideas and policies makes it a pleasure to support her candidacy."
"I am looking forward to working with Progressive Majority during the campaign and as a state senator," said Mancini. "As Democrats and progressives, we know that it’s only when we work together that we can make a real change in the priorities at the state capitol."
The governor is speaking at a conference at War Memorial on "faith, culture and public life," but if the media want to cover it, the media will have to pay...$775.
