NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)Gerald McCormick, the fiery majority leader of the Tennessee House, says he won't seek another term as the chamber's No. 2 Republican.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports (http://bit.ly/2cZbEYQ) that McCormick has informed his colleagues of his decision not to stand for majority leader again following the November elections.

McCormick said he is "incredibly proud" of his time as majority leader and that he will continue to serve the GOP caucus in whatever way his colleagues see fit.

The announcement comes just a little over a month after the Chattanooga Republican first told colleagues he planned to seek a fourth term as majority leader after Republican Rep. Jimmy Matlock of Lenoir City said he would challenge House Speaker Beth Harwell of Nashville for the top position in the House.
