Election Results Come In As Polls Close Across Middle Tennessee

CREATED May 6, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Voters in several counties across the mid-state headed to the polls Tuesday for primary elections.

Polls opened at 7 a.m. and closed at 7 p.m. In Davidson County, Glenn Funk, Diane Lance, and Rob McGuire are all vying for the seat left vacant by outgoing District Attorney General Torry Johnson.

McGuire served as Deputy DA and has Johnson's support. Diane Lance picked up an endorsement from former Tennessee first lady and victims' rights advocate Andrea Conte. Meanwhile, Glenn Funk has out-paced the other candidates in fundraising, raising his profile through TV ads and social media campaigns.

Funk has been leading early on with only a small number of precincts reporting.

Additionally, incumbent Sheriff Daron Hall faces Kenneth Hardy.

In Rutherford County, voters will select GOP nominees for positions like mayor, sheriff, and district attorney general. Incumbent County Mayor Ermest Burgess will face off with challenger Jimmy Evans. And incumbent sheriff Robert Arnold will be in the running against challenger Bob Asbury. The winners will advance to the general election on August 7.

Also a big Sheriff race in Sumner County, as Stan Hilgadiack takes on incumbent Roy "Sonny" Weatherford.

Sumner County schools were closed Tuesday for the elections.

Williamson County Republicans will also be casting votes for judges and county commission members.
