|Description||State Rep. Beth Harwell, R-Nashville, said here Monday afternoon that she is considering a run for governor in 2010. |
After speaking to the Pachyderm Club in Chattanooga, she said that her "heart and passion" are for Tennessee government.
Rep. Harwell, former Tennessee GOP chairwoman, explored running in the 2006 U.S. Senate contest, but she eventually decided not to seek the seat given up by former U.S. Sen. Bill Frist. Republican Bob Corker won that seat last fall.
The Nashville lawmaker acknowledged that it could be difficult to run if Mr. Frist gets in the governor's race. But she stressed that it is still a long time until the gubernatorial election.
