In a stunning announcement made today, country music star Hank Williams, Jr. announced that he will run for the U.S. Senate as a Republican during the next primary election. That means he will attempt to unseat Bob Corker in 2012, leading to speculation Bob Corker may leave the Senate and run for Governor of Tennessee in 2010 to make way for Williams. Hank Jr. has apparently already spoken to both Bill Frist and Lamar Alexander about a potential run for Senate.
I don’t know what to make of this just yet. What do you guys think?
