Guess They’ll Have To Secede After All

Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam (R) defeated Rep. Zach Wamp (R-Tenn.) and Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey (R) to claim the GOP gubernatorial nod Thursday.

Boosted by his support during early voting, Haslam was declared the winner by the Associated Press close to an hour after the polls closed in Tennessee. He’d received more than 131,000 votes, while Wamp, his closest rival, had just less than 70,000.

By Aug. 2 more than 540,000 people had already cast ballots for Thursday’s primary, according to the Tennessee Department of State.
