After serving four years, Tennessee Democratic Party Chairman Chip Forrester will not seek re-election to the party's top post. 

Forrester, 57, told The Tennessean today he would not be seeking a third two-year term. During his two terms, Democrats lost holds on the governor's office, three congressional seats and various seats in the General Assembly. 

Before serving as party chair, Forrester worked on various Democratic campaigns in the state, including successful campaigns for former Gov. Ned McWherter and former U.S. Sen. Al Gore.
