Tennessee – Results of August 5 Primary Election Results


Many of you may be aware that I am undergoing some medical treatments right now.  If my posting is not as updated as quickly as normal, please just look over it for now.  I’ll be back full speed very soon.

In the meantime, here are the results of the August 5 Tennessee Primary Election for your perusal.

Governor: With the term-limited Democratic Governor Phil Bredesen’s vacated seat, the November General Election Ballot will reflect the Democratic candidate, Mike McWherter hopefully falling to the Republican Primary Winner Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam and several so-called “Independent” candidates.

U.S. CONGRESS:

District 1:

Incumbent Republican Phil Roe won his party re-nomination to face Democrat Mike Clark and an Independent candidate.

District 2:

Incumbent Republican John Duncan, Jr. will be matched against the Democratic Party candidate, Dave Hancock and several Independents.

District 3:

Incumbent Republican Zach Wamp lost his Primary bid for Governor and will apparently sit out the November General Election.

The Democratic Primary winner John Wolfe, Jr. is pitted against the Republican Primary Winner Charles J. “Chuck” Fleischmann and several Independent candidates for the District 3 seat.

District 4:

Incumbent Democrat Lincoln Edward Davis won re-nomination in the August 5 Primary for the right to face the Republican Primary Winner, Scott Eugene DesJarlais in November along with several Independent candidates.

District 5:

Incumbent Democrat Jim Cooper sought and won re-nomination and the ballot position against Republican Primary Winner David Hall and nine Independent candidates representing the Green Party, Libertarian Party and others.

District 6:

Incumbent Democratic Party Congressman Bart Gordon has retired leaving the District 6 seat vacant for the Democratic Primary Winner Brett Ryan Carter seeking to defeat the Republican Primary Winner State Senator Diane Lynn black and some Independent candidates.

District 7:

Incumbent Republican Marsha Blackburn won re-nomination to face off against Democrat Greg Robert Rabidoux and Independent Bill Stone.

District 8:

Incumbent Democrat John Tanner retired at the end of 2009 leaving the vacancy to be filled by State Senator Roy Brasfield Herron (D) or Stephen Lee “Steve” Fincher (R) and two other Independent challengers.

District 9:

Incumbent Democrat Steve Cohen sought and won his re-nomination against the sole Democrat candidate in the Primary former Memphis Mayor Willie Wilbert Herenton.  Mr. Cohen will be placed on the ballot in November against Republican Charlotte Bergmann and two Independent candidates.
