One of Tennessee's longest serving lawmakers said on Wednesday he will not seek re-election in 2014.

Senator Douglas Henry has been a state senator since 1971.

In the 79th General Assembly in the mid-1950s, he was a House member for a single 2-year
term.

The longtime conservative Democrat has garnered legions of friends and supporters during his tenure.

Henry, who turns 87 this week, said he will dedicate his time to taking care of his wife.
