EAST RIDGE, TN. (Times Free Press) -- State Rep. Vince Dean, R-East Ridge, announced Friday he plans to seek re-election to the House District 30 seat and not run for the state Senate.

"I will be submitting my qualification papers on Monday morning to the Hamilton County Election Commission," Dean said in a statement.

Dean noted that while he has been "overwhelmed by friends and supporters that have urged me to seek Senate District 10, I feel that currently, I need to continue my focus on my House duties."

Earlier this month, House Majority Leader Gerald McCormick, R-Chattanooga, and House Speaker Beth Harwell, R-Nashville, asked Dean to reconsider plans to run for the Senate.
