Early life and education

He is the son of Tennessee Adjutant General Gus L. Hargett Jr. and Mrs. Pat Vaughan. He is a Southern Baptist.[1]

Hargett earned a B.B.A. in accounting with honors, as well as an M.B.A. from the University of Memphis.


In the private sector, Hargett worked for Rural/Metro, an emergency services provider. At the time of his appointment as TRA chairman, Hargett was serving as the corporation's Vice President for the Southern Region.[2]


Hargett served in the Tennessee House of Representatives from 1996 to 2006 representing District 97 (Bartlett and Memphis).[3] He was twice elected Republican Leader by his colleagues.

In 2007, he was nominated to the position of Tennessee Regulatory Authority (TRA) chairman, which sets the rates and service standards of privately owned telephone, natural gas, electric and water utilities.[2][4] He was confirmed by the Tennessee General Assembly and served from February 2008 through January 2009. He was succeeded by Dr. Kenneth Hill.[5]

In January 2009, the state legislature's new Republican majority voted to replace longtime Secretary of State Riley Darnell with Hargett. Hargett immediately resigned from his position as TRA chairman and took office as secretary of state on January 15, 2009.

In September 2017, Hargett said he was in favor of keeping the bust of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest inside the Tennessee State Capitol.[6]

In 2019, Hargett supported legislation which would make it possible to fine voter registration groups that submitted incomplete voter registrations.[7][8] Critics charged that the legislation was intended to reduce registration of new voters.[9] Hargett rejected that the bill was intended to reduce registration of black voters.[9]
