Andy Ogles wins District 5 GOP primary, and other election results.

Andy Ogles wins Congressional District 5 GOP primary.

The Dems take all of the Nashville school board elections. 

  • In District 2, Rachael Anne Elrod beat Republican challenger Todd Pembroke. 
  • In District 4, Berthena Nabaa-McKinney defeated Republican Kelli Phillips.
  • In  District 6, incumbent board member Fran Bush who ran as an independent and who was the only current member of the Board I liked, lost to Democratic challenger and former school board chair Cheryl Mayes.
All four amendments to the Metro charter passed by wide margins.

State Sen. Jack Johnson beat challenger Gary Humble in a tight District 27 Republican primary. In what is today's political spectrum, Humble, who is an anti-vaxer, ran to the right of Jack Johnson. That it was a close race shows just how nutty the Republican Party has become.  Johnson should have won by a landslide. 

Michelle Foreman wins the Republican primary in House District 59 beating Wyatt Rampy.  Foreman will face off against Democrat Caleb Hemmer in the November general election. 

In State House District 52, Left-wing activist Justin Jones won a close race defeating Councilmember Delishia Porterfield in the race to replace Rep. Mike Stewart. There is no Repubkucan candidate.  Jones may be remembered as one who led demonstrations against the police at Legislative Plaza, who threw a cup of coffee on Glen Casada, and who disrupted a Marsha Blackburn event a couple years ago.

In State House District 41, incumbent Terri Lynn Weaver lost the Republican primary to Smithville businessman Michael Hale who will face Tom Cook, the Democratic nominee, in the November 8th Tennessee General Election. (link)
