The Nashville Post is reporting, from a variety of sources, that state Senator John Wilder (D-Somerville) will not seek re-election, as he previously indicated, but plans to announce his retirement.

Wilder was defeated for re-election as state Lieutenant Governor by a narrow vote of the Senate in January 2007 and, since then, has had a hospitalization for a fall, followed by a reported case of pneumonia.
