In his formal announcement this morning that he is running for Tennessee governor, U.S. Rep. Zach Wamp said the campaign is turning into a “two-man race.”

Rep. Wamp urged a crowd of supporters at the Hamilton County Courthouse to help him against Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam, whom Rep. Wamp said has spent $2 million in the campaign so far.

The Chattanooga congressman said he and others are urging Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, R-Blountville, to stay in the lieutenant governor’s office.

Shelby County District Attorney Bill Gibbons is also running in the Republican primary for governor.

Three Democrats — former state Rep. Kim McMillan, D-Clarksville; state Sen. Jim Kyle, D-Memphis, and Mike McWherter are running in that primary.

Rep. Wamp said he plans to file his papers today to be an official candidate in the gubernatorial contest.

He is right about it being a two-man race ... unfortunately for him he isn't one of the two. Haslam and Ramsey are clearly the front-runners. Guess he should have violated that Congressional term limit pledge for a couple more terms.
