NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Tennessee has an open U.S. Senate seat next year. Long-time Republican Senator Lamar Alexander is retiring. Several prominent Republicans are eyeing the race including former Governor Bill Haslam, Ambassador to Japan Bill Hagerty and Congressman Mark Green. But the first GOP candidate in the 2020 GOP primary field to take Senator Alexander’s place is a Nashville trauma surgeon, Dr. Manny Sethi. He says he is running for office for the first time as “a conservative outsider.” Dr. Sethi is our guest on INSIDE POLITICS this week. Like many of you, I will be meeting and talking to him for the first time. It is a most interesting conversation.
