NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The former executive director of Tennessee Citizen Action says she will seek to chair the Tennessee Democratic Party.

Mary Mancini announced Tuesday that she arrived at her decision after many hours of listening to fellow Democrats.

Most recently, Mancini was a candidate for the state Senate. Prior to that she headed the advocacy group Tennessee Citizen Action, where she helped organize large scale voter registrations drives, among other things.

Former Democratic state Rep. Gloria Johnson is also seeking the Democratic Party chair. The Knoxville resident made her announcement shortly after her loss in the general election on Tuesday.

The Democratic Party is expected to hold elections for the chairmanship in January.
