Courtney Johnston could emerge as the rare primary challenger who outraises the incumbent

Courtney Johnston
Axios Nashville, June 12, 2024- Nashville Councilmember Courtney Johnston has quickly seized on U.S. Rep. Andy Ogles' campaign finance snafu and turned it into fodder for a fundraising drive.

Why it matters: Ogles entered the race with the incumbent's advantage over primary opponent Johnston in terms of name recognition, as well as the endorsement of former President Trump.

Driving the news: Johnston tapped prominent Republican fundraiser Kim Kaegi to raise money for her primary challenge of Ogles. Kaegi previously handled fundraising for top Republicans such as Gov. Bill Lee, former Gov. Bill Haslam and former Sen. Bob Corker. (link )
