Tennessee Rep. Diane Black announced a long expected run for governor on Wednesday. 

The four-term member, who became the first woman to chair the Budget Committee earlier this year, will not run for re-election to the 6th District in 2018. She’s vying to become the Volunteer State’s first female governor.
