Judge Joe Brown for Senate?

Posted:

MEMPHIS (WATE) - A familiar face could challenge Sen. Lamar Alexander for his Senate seat in 2014.

The Commercial Appeal reports that TV personality Judge Joe Brown is considering running against the long-time senator as the Democratic nominee.

The judge's show is being canceled later this year.

Brown was a former criminal court judge in Shelby County before launching his television series.

He gained national notoriety for presiding over the last appeal of James Earl Ray, the man convicted of killing Martin Luther King, Jr.
