Outgoing Nashville DA: I'm Not Running for Mayor

Stream WZTV Fox 17 Newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5am and News at 9pm.

Outgoing Davidson County District Attorney General Torry Johnson said in a press release on Wednesday that he will not be running for mayor of Nashville.

"Earlier this year, when I announced that I would not be seeking another term, I said that I would be exploring other opportunities, but had no immediate plans," he wrote. "While that is still true, I have ruled out the option of running for mayor. After much thought and consideration and consultation with my family, I have decided to not seek that position."

Torry will be replaced by Glenn Funk, who won an election this month.
