Tennessee Primary Results

August 8, 2014

The Tennessee primary was held on Thursday August 7.   

US Senate:    Second term incumbent Lamar Alexander held off tea party challenger Joe Carr and several other candidates.  On the Democratic side, Attorney Gordon Ball narrowly edged attorney Terry Adams to win the nomination.   Senator Alexander is heavily favored to win re-election in November.  

Governor:   As expected, incumbent Bill Haslam (R) cruised to a primary victory, while Charles Brown held off three challengers on the Democratic side.   Haslam is a prohibitive favorite to be re-elected.

US House:   All vote totals can be seen here.   The composition of Tennessee's congressional House delegation is not expected to change in November.  All 9 seats (7 Republicans and 2 Democrats) are rated as safe for the incumbent party.    As of this writing, TN-04 incumbent Scott DesJarlais holds an exceptionally narrow 33 vote lead over State Senator Jim Tracy for the Republican nomination.   No winner has been declared as of yet.
