A week ago, news broke that Tennessee state Sen. Paul Stanley had had an affair with a 22-year-old legislative intern in his office. Last night, Stanley announced that he's resigning his seat, as of Aug. 10.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
