Matt Kuhn to Seek Chairmanship of State Democratic Party
November 17, 2010 at 5:33PM
Matt Kuhn, who was turned to by a reconstituted Shelby County Democratic Committee in 2005 to become a “new broom” party chairman, is offering himself in a similar role for the state Democratic Party. In a letter Wednesday to members of the state Democratic Committee, Kuhn said, “I’m exploring the opportunity to run as chairman of the Tennessee Democratic Party and am actively discussing my candidacy with executive committee members as well as leaders of our Party.”
Kuhn thereby becomes the first declared alternative to current state Democratic chairman Chip Forrester, who has already announced his candidacy for reelection in January.
