NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett does not plan to run for governor in 2018.

Hargett was among several Republicans included in early speculation after the Nov. 4 election about potential candidates to succeed Gov. Bill Haslam, who can’t run for a third consecutive term.

The Commercial Appeal (https://bit.ly/1xRmR3t) reports Hargett recently issued a statement saying he’s focusing on his current job as secretary of state.

The former House Republican leader from Bartlett raised some eyebrows before the general election when his office issued new “I Voted” stickers emblazoned with Hargett’s name and looking a lot like campaign bumper stickers.
