NASHVILLE (AP) – Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has named Gov. Bill Haslam his campaign chairman in Tennessee.

The Romney campaign also announced Tuesday that it has gathered a full slate of 48 delegate candidates on the Tennessee ballot, led by former Gov. Winfield Dunn.

Haslam said in a statement that the delegates represent the statewide strength of the Romney campaign in Tennessee.

Early voting for Tennessee's March 6 presidential primary begins Wednesday.

Romney supported Haslam in the state's 2010 governor's race, and Haslam's father and brother also hold leadership positions in the former Massachusetts governor's Tennessee operations.
