It's Joe P. Binkley, Jr., not Councilman Mike Jameson. http://www.nashvillecitypaper.com/news.php?viewStory=59292 .
I know. I'm getting to this late, but I actually heard about it at dinner tonight. Just couldn't get to the blog until now. Since Jameson will not be vacating his seat, the speculation can end about all the names who might enter the race. Many thought, given the makeup of the district, that it would have been a plum spot for an openly gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender candidate. But there will be other opportunities.
