Who is Eric Stewart?

Eric Stewart is a Democratic party politician in Tennessee, who once represented the 14th District as State Senator from 2008-2012. His district included all or parts of Bledsoe, Coffee, Franklin, Grundy, Sequatchie, Van Buren and Warren counties. Prior to his election to the State Senate, Stewart served as a Franklin County commissioner. After redistricting in 2012, his district was renumbered District 16 and lost Bledsoe County but added Marion. He opted to not run for re-election in 2012 in the newly drawn district and instead mounted an unsuccessful run in Tennessee's 4th congressional district, which includes almost all of his state senate district. He lost to Republican incumbent Scott DesJarlais.

Stewart founded his own insurance agency, Eric Stewart Insurance, in Fayetteville in 1999. The agency currently operates as The Stewart Insurance Agency in Winchester, Tennessee.
