Robin Smith will make her congressional intentions known on the popular morning talk radio program
“Fred the Show” “The Morning Press” on Friday, December 2 at 8:30 a.m. A clip from her media announcement follows:
The former Tennessee Republican Party Chairman, having served for over two decades in grassroots politics, ran in the 3rd Congressional District open primary of 2010. Losing by less than 1500 votes in the district that touches four state lines and includes parts of eleven counties, Smith has been in an active process of meeting with advisors and supporters to make her decision about a second run for Congress. The Robin Smith for Congress campaign raised approximately $723,000 during the 2010 primary election from individual supporters and conservative organizations.
There’s also been (very unsubstantiated) talk about Smith possibly seeking a state House of Representatives seat instead.
Of course, the third option is that she decides not to run for any office at this time.
Analysis of the 3rd District race will follow shortly after the announcement. (Like, in the next day or two.)
UPDATE 2: The decision.
(Updated 12/2 to correct the name of the radio program.)
