NASHVILLE (AP) — Republican gubernatorial candidate Randy Boyd is scheduled to visit all four corners of Tennessee next week as part of his campaign launch.

The businessman and former state economic development commissioner starts the swing in his hometown of Knoxville on Tuesday morning, with further stops scheduled for Nashville and Union City.

On Wednesday, Boyd starts his day in Memphis before heading to Fruitvale and Jackson. He wraps up the tour on Thursday in Blountville and Chattanooga.

Boyd's campaign says he has already visited Bradley, Rutherford, Williamson, Greene and Loudon counties since launching his gubernatorial bid on Monday. Next week's tour will add Knox, Davidson, Obion, Shelby, Crockett, Madison, Sullivan and Hamilton counties.

Boyd wants to visit all 95 Tennessee counties during the campaign.
