Overview and Live Results: Tennessee Primary

Tennessee is one of two states that has scheduled its 2022 primary on a day of the week other than Tuesday. The other, Hawaii, will hold its contests next Saturday, August 13.

The state is also one of two - along with Nebraska - that span two time zones, where polls across the state close at the same time. In this case, that's 8:00 PM Eastern Time, 7:00 PM Central Time.

On the ballot are primaries for governor, as well as U.S. House and State Legislature. Use the link below for all results.

U.S. House District 5 (Republican)

This is the only race we're closely watching. Long-time incumbent Democrat Jim Cooper decided to retire after the boundaries of the district shifted from one where Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump by a 24% margin to one Trump would have won by 12%. The Legislature accomplished this by dividing Nashville into three during the redistricting process. 

Nine Republicans are seeking the nomination and a likely win in the general election. The leading candidates include former Tennessee House Speaker Beth Harwell, Maury County Mayor Andy Ogles, and Kurt Winstead, a retired Tennessee National Guardsman who has had the most fundraising success. The Democratic nominee will be State Sen. Heidi Campbell.
