NASHVILLE (AP) - Longtime senator Douglas Henry will not seek re-election in 2014.

The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/16XvP1y) reports that Henry's political ally attorney Nick Bailey sent an email to Henry's supporters on Tuesday announcing the 86-year-old Nashville Democrat's decision. Bailey said Henry will serve the remainder of his term through next year.

Bailey did not immediately return a call to The Associated Press Wednesday morning.

Henry was the longtime chairman of the powerful Senate Finance Committee until Republicans took control of the upper chamber in 2007. Before his election to the Senate, Henry served a single term in the state House beginning in 1955. He was later elected to the Senate in 1971 where he's remained.

Henry's District 21 seat represents southwestern Nashville, including some of the city's wealthiest neighborhoods.
