NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennessee's Democratic Party chairman is recovering from a heart attack.

Roy Herron's wife, Nancy, said in an email on Sunday that her husband is recuperating from a heart attack he had earlier this month. She said he had gone to the hospital after experiencing chest pains and doctors discovered he had a blocked artery.

However, she said after having a medical procedure he is back home and doing well.

In September, Herron announced that he won't seek a second term as party chairman.

Herron, a Dresden attorney, retired from the Legislature after a 25-year career in the state House and Senate in 2012. He made an ill-fated bid for an open congressional seat in 2010, losing to Republican Stephen Fincher by 20 percentage points.
