State Rep. Mike Turner to step down as caucus chairman

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - State Rep. Mike Turner says he will step down in January as the House Democratic Caucus chairman.

Turner, who has served in the role for five years, cited philosophical differences with the state's Democratic Party Chairman Roy Herron.

Turner told The Tennessean that he and Herron are friends, but suggested they have very different visions for the political party.

Turner said he plans to step down after participating in a few fundraising obligations that are already scheduled.
