Tennessee Lawmakers Set to Re-Elect Some Positions and Pick a New Comptroller

Tennessee lawmakers are set to re-elect the secretary of state and treasurer and pick a new comptroller.

The vote is expected today (Wednesday) a day after the House and Senate Republican supermajorities nominated Jason Mumpower to become comptroller and Secretary of State Tre Hargett and Treasurer David Lillard to keep their positions.

Mumpower is the top deputy for current Comptroller Justin Wilson, who is retiring. Lawmakers first elected Wilson, Hargett and Lillard to their statewide offices in 2009.

The secretary of state is elected to four-year terms, while the comptroller and treasurer serve two-year terms.

There is no custom code to display.
