Radio and TV entrepreneur Dr. GEORGE S. FLINN is planning a run for Congress in the 8th Congressional District of TENNESSEE, reports the MEMPHIS COMMERCIAL APPEAL. FLINN, who serves as SHELBY COUNTY Commissioner, has not made a formal declaration but has filed a statement of intent to run with the Federal Election Commission.
FLINN, a Republican, is the third G.O.P. candidate to run for the seat being vacated by the retiring incumbent JOHN TANNER. Another potential candidate, JOHN FARMER, told the paper that he is dropping out of the race to support FLINN.
