Weston Wamp (son of Zach) for Congress?

Weston Wamp, son of former Republican congressman and gubernatorial candidate Zach Wamp, is exploring a run for his father’s former seat in the U.S. Congress, according to multiple NashvillePost.com sources. (Link HERE, subscription required.)
The seat, Tennessee’s 3rd Congressional District, is currently held by freshman Republican Rep. Chuck Fleischmann. Zach Wamp represented the district from 1995 until early this year.
According to several sources, the ex-congressman has been calling his former campaign donors asking for financial support should a bid materialize and has taken Weston Wamp to Washington, D.C., in the hopes of signing on a big-name political consultant.
So far, though, none of the consultants approached have expressed interest in getting involved in what could cause a messy intra-party squabble. After leaving the U.S. Congress, Wamp has opened up a general consulting firm that “specializes in energy, defense/security, transportation and workforce development/technology transfer,” according to his website.
