Carriger to challenge Hill for 7th District seat

Former Johnson City commissioner Phil Carriger will challenge incumbent state Rep. Matthew Hill, R-Jonesborough, for the GOP'S 7th District House seat.

"I'm convinced I have the support, and I think I can beat him," Carriger said this morning. "They need somebody in Nashville with some business and financial experience — Matthew doesn't have that."

Carriger said he will make a formal announcement in January.

The state primary is Aug. 7.
