State Rep. Mike Turner to resign

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- House Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Turner says he will not seek re-election.

Turner told members of the House of Representatives on Thursday that he will retire at the end of the year after serving 14 years in District 51, which covers the areas of Old Hickory, Madison, east Nashville, downtown Nashville and Germantown.

Turner has served as caucus chairman since 2009.

Last month, Democratic State Rep. Charles Curtiss stepped down after serving for 19 years. Curtiss announced in October that he wouldn't run again for his District 43 seat that includes Grundy, Warren and White counties.
