ELIZABETHTON - MIke Clark officially announces on April 17, 2010 that he is a Democratic primary candidate for the Tennessee 1st U.S. House District seat in Washington, D.C. with his kick-off campaign speech and Carter County Democrats hotdog cook-off event at the downtown Covered Bridge Park.

Clark noted early within his speech that the last Democrat elected to represent the Tennessee 1st U.S. House District was Carter County native Robert L. Taylor, who served within the U.S. House of Representatives from 1879 to 1881.

Earlier Democrats representing the Tennessee 1st U.S. House District included U.S. Representatives Andrew Jackson (1796-1797, at large) and Andrew Johnson (1843-1853, 1st), each who represented this area of Northeast Tennessee and would later during their individual politically histories served as President of the United States of America.

Elizabethton is the county seat of Carter County, Tennessee, United States. Elizabethton is the historical site both of the first independent American government located west of both the Eastern Continental Divide and the original thirteen British colonies known as the Watauga Association (1772).

Elizabethton is also the historical site of the Transylvania Purchase (1775), and a major historic muster site for the Battle of Kings Mountain (1780).
