Kay White officially announces she's entering race for Tennessee Governor


A Johnson City realtor has officially announced she is running for Tennessee governor.

Kay White is the newest candidate in the governor's race, making the announcement Saturday night at the Jonesborough Visitor Center.

Some key issues she says she represents are to keep Tennessee from sanctuary city status, supporting state law enforcement and fighting against funding education for illegal immigrants.

There were about 100 people there Saturday.

In the race so far are republicans Mae Beavers, Randy Boyd, Beth Harwell and Bill Lee.

The only democrat is former Nashville mayor Karl Dean.
