Democratic businessman Mike McWherter , son of former Gov. Ned McWherter , announced Thursday his intention to run for his dad’s old job.

“I believe I have the tools needed to really help our struggling families and move our state forward — and that is why I’m running for Governor of Tennessee,” McWherter said in a statement.  

Democrats have long been working to recruit McWherter for statewide office.
