NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - One of the leading contenders for Tennessee governor in 2018 says he is rethinking financial ties to a company run by a prominent GOP donor who settled a federal fraud case involving a military health care program.

The donor, Andy Miller Jr., has been a major backer of tea party candidates and issues in recent years. He bankrolled a 2011 trip to Europe for six state lawmakers billed as a “fact-finding mission” about the dangers of radical Islam and was a major supporter of former GOP Rep. Jeremy Durham, who was recently expelled from the Legislature.

Sen. Mark Green says he is re-evaluating his investment in Miller’s company, Diatech Oncology. Green declined to say how much money is involved but called reassessing the investment “the right thing to do.”
