MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A trial date has been set for Tennessee State Senator Brian Kelsey.

Kelsey is accused of violating multiple campaign finance laws during his unsuccessful 2016 run for Congress.

His trial is set for January 18 in Nashville. There will be a pretrial hearing January 10. Kelsey says the investigation is a “political witch hunt.”

During the Tennessee special session in October, Kelsey stepped down as Senate Education Committee chair.
