NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris (R-Collierville) made the following statement regarding the announcement that Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey will not seek re-election:
“There’s a saying on the farm: “Always look well to the other horse before you run in double harness.”
Ron Ramsey and I have been together as a team in Senate Leadership for a decade.
His retirement marks the end of a great era. Under his leadership, we not only gained the majority, but Tennessee has flourished in so many important ways. He demonstrated that “it matters who governs.”
I’m glad for his friendship and everything he has done to make Tennessee a better place.”
