Diane Black first hit the stage in Tennessee as a toughminded legislator who bucked her own party’s Governor to help stop a state income tax. Now, Black herself is aiming for that job with a commitment to keep her independent streak.The former nurse from Gallatin and the first woman in history to Chair the House Budget Committee, Black announced she will run for Governor one year from the date of the 2018 Republican primary with a video sent to Tennessee Republicans.“Most people in politics say the right things, but never fight for the right things. They’re too meek – or maybe too weak,” Black said.
