OK, Flyer readers, you will — repeat, will — have Mae Beavers to, er kick around (or to celebrate, chacun a son gout) , depending on your politics, for much of the next two years.

The ever-controversial iron maiden of the Tennessee state Senate is reliably said to be considering a run for Governor in 2018.

A hat tip to Steve Steffens, the LeftWingCracker blogger, who called our attention to an item in the Nashville Scene that quotes Beavers as responding to the prospect of a withdrawal fro the declared candidate list of her Senate colleague, Mark Green (R-Clarksville), who may be offered the position of Secretary of the Army.

Quoth Beavers (R-Mt. Juliet), according to the Scene
: "After the announcement of Senator Green possibly being secretary of the Army, I had calls for a couple of days, and we decided to explore the possibility.”

Beaver is well known as a strict social conservative and an advocate, among other things, for severe curbs on immigrants as well as for the “bathroom bill” that would restrict transgender Tennesseans to the rest room corresponding to the gender indicated on their birth certificates.
