Inside Politics: Remembering Senator Douglas Henry

Tonight on Inside Politics we salute the life and accomplishments of Senator Douglas Henry, who died this week at the age of 90. He began a distinguished career as a public servant in 1955 and had the distinction of being that state's longest serving member. Today at his funeral he was remembered for his service to the state and the people of Tennessee, but, mostly for being a true southern gentleman. Joining us are two people who were among his closest friends. One is House Speaker Beth Harwell and is Nick Bailey, Senator Henry’s longtime friend, confidant and campaign manager. We’ll hear their reflections of their dear friend and Tennessee legend.
