McCormick seeks second term as state House leader

NASHVILLE — State House Majority Leader Gerald McCormick, R-Chattanooga, is seeking a second term in the House's No. 2 spot.

In letters to fellow GOP Caucus members, McCormick asks for their votes when they meet in several weeks.

"Hopefully I've earned your confidence as my commitment to you and our members remains the same: Provide the best and most consistent information, accessibility, and support possible," McCormick says in the letters, sent the day after Tuesday's general election.

"Some find leadership to be a lonely job, but not when there is an excellent team serving with you," the letter says.

House Caucus elections are slated later this month. At this point, no one has emerged to challenge McCormick.
