NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Democratic strategist Mark Brown is leaving the gubernatorial campaign of Nashville businessman Ward Cammack.

Brown declined to give specific reasons for his departure Monday other than to say: "It was time to move my career in another direction."

Cammack is largely unknown in political circles but is considered a potential contender for the nomination because of his personal wealth.

Other Democrats in the race include state Sen. Roy Herron of Dresden, former state House Majority Leader Kim McMillan of Clarksville, and Jackson businessman Mike McWherter.

Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen can't run again in 2010 because of term limits.

Brown previously worked as political director for the state Senate Democratic Caucus, spokesman for the state Democratic Party and a campaign staffer for Bredesen in 2002.
