GOP division over House District 31

Andy Sherr reports that Rep. Richard Floyd (R-Chattanooga) is supporting former Rep. Jim Vincent for a House seat.

Floyd's nod to Vincent puts him at odds with the House Republican leadership who are backing Rep. Jim Cobb (R-Spring City) in the race. Rep. Jason Mumpower (R-Bristol) and Rep. Glen Casada (R-College Grove) are among those who wrote to the Chattanooga Times Free Press in support of Cobb.

With all the members of the General Assembly retiring and with contested primaries, we should look for huge changes in the 106th session.
