State Rep. Craig Fitzhugh, the House minority leader, says he will run for governor in the 2018 Democratic primary.

Fitzhugh, a banker from Ripley, is a somewhat moderate but outspoken rural Democrat with ties to labor and education.

In this interview with the Tennessean, he says "when I'm elected governor, we're going to expand Medicaid."

It doesn't really matter at

It doesn't really matter at this point what his positions are. For reasons I am happy to expound upon and explain over beer, I would vote for a Democrat I actively hated over a republican that I personally liked.

I say that as one who has accepted that I will never think of myself or describe myself as a Democrat after the last presidential campaign. Republicanism is a cancer on the nation. I'll not be voting for cancer.
