Several sources have independently confirmed this report to The Tennessee Star.
Green is considered a front runner in the race for the Republican nomination for Governor of Tennessee in 2018.
Should he not run, there will no longer be a strongly conservative candidate in the race to challenge Randy Boyd and potential candidate Rep. Diane Black (R-TN).
