NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - State Republican Party Chairman Chris Devaney is running for a fourth term.

Devaney in a Wednesday letter to the State Executive Committee members who elect the chairman cited his role in establishing GOP supermajorities in both chambers of the General Assembly and electoral successes in governor’s and congressional races.

Devaney was first elected to complete the unexpired term of predecessor Robin Smith after she left to make an unsuccessful bid for Congress in 2009. Devaney was elected to his first full term as chairman the following year.

Devaney was U.S. Sen. Bob Corker’s state director before becoming chairman of the party. He previously worked as the party’s executive director and as a staffer for former U.S. Sens. Fred Thompson of Tennessee and Phil Gramm of Texas.
