NASHVILLE (AP) – State Rep. Barrett Rich says he won't run for another term representing his rural West Tennessee district in the House this year.

The Somerville Republican has served three terms in the lower chamber of the General Assembly. He is a former state trooper who served on then-Gov. Phil Bredesen's security detail and is the current chairman of the House Health Subcommittee.

The House District 94 seat represents all of Fayette and McNairy counties and part of Hardeman County.

Other incumbents who aren't seeking re-election this year include Republican Rep. Vince Dean of East Ridge and Eric Watson of Cleveland and House Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Turner of Nashville.

The deadline for candidates to file their qualifying petitions to run for office this year is on Thursday.
