The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that former Rep. Jim Vincent will seek his old seat against fellow Republican Jim Cobb. http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2008/mar/29/vincent-run-again-state-house-seat/
District 31 includes northern Hamilton County and Rhea County. Yes, that Rhea County that tried to ban gays.
"Mr. Vincent said he conducted a poll of Hamilton and Rhea counties and found conditions favorable for him to run. He declined to share the poll results with the media." Hmmm. One can only wonder what those favorable conditions include.
