Senator Doug Overbey won’t confirm or deny consideration for US Attorney of Eastern District of Tennessee

Yesterday on the radio show Real News airing on Talk Radio 92.3 FM in Knoxville, Knox County political operative Kenny Collins said that multiple sources have told him that Tennessee State Senator Doug Overbey will be nominated as the next US Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee.

Overbey would not deny or confirm that he is being considered for the position, saying today that he could not comment on the matter.  He did say that he had heard the same rumors, that I have heard.

One would think that if he wasn’t under consideration he would have denied the “same rumors.”  You can draw your own conclusion.

Scott Williams, who ran against Overbey for the 2nd district senate seat last year, said today that he is seriously considering running if Overbey vacates the seat.  Williams will be in a better position to win this time, as he will have more name recognition and team of supporters willing to help him campaign.
