UPDATE: Even Later
It’s mostly official now. A Democrat is running against Lamar in the General election. I can’t remember who it is. Does it matter? It’s the Bob guy, I think. You know, the one who got 64 votes in Hawkins County. They must’ve liked him elsewhere, I guess.
In other news: No pink slips for the kin: Marsha Blackburn won. Well, there’s the business of the general election but… eh.
Johnson City Mayor Phil Roe has defeated his opponent incumbent U.S. Rep. David Davis, R-Tenn. Roe received 25,918 votes or 50.4% according to unofficial results. Davis received 25,458 votes or 49.6 percent of the ballots cast. Roe will face Democrat Rob Russell, who grabbed 4091 votes (63%) in the Democratic Primary.
Oh and finally…
Dear Nikki Tinker, God don’t like ugly. Voters don’t either. Now you know. Best wishes.
