Tennessee Election Results
August 6, 2010 by USA Post
Tennessee Election Results, The Republican primary for the nomination for governor had his share of land to be hung up by candidates. At one point, Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam and the U.S. Representative Zack Wamp made accusations at each other’s participation links with the interests of gambling.
On Thursday, the two men went to war in the polls and Haslam came out the winner when the election results were final Tennessee. Haslam will be the Republican nominee to become the next governor of Tennessee.
As the election approached and the calendar turned to June, Wamp took the first shot. Wamp Camp sent a press release in which the candidate questioned the Haslam family had an interest in the game. The family owns the Haslam Pilot Travel Centers in several states where casino gambling is legal. Wamp suggested that an association may have formed between commercial interests and gambling.
Haslam immediately denied the charge and proceeded to accuse some of their own. The campaign claimed that Wamp Haslam took the contributions of the business of the Cherokee Nation Political Action Committee. The Committee openly represents the interests in Indian casinos.
If the allegations were true or not playing does not matter to voters on Thursday. Haslam won the fifty percent of the Republican primary vote.Wamp finished second, twenty percentage points behind Haslam. Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey finished third with twenty-two percent of the vote. Ramsey was affected by the perception of the legislators currently in office.
Tennessee is one of the many states that hold primaries prior to the midterm elections in November. In most states, the issue of play will be the key to which candidate comes out on top.
In recent years a casino boom has occurred in the U.S., and the importance of the issue may be more on the race of governor of Alabama. The candidates have drawn the lines in the sand along party lines on the question of play, with Republicans seeking to maintain the status quo, and the favorite Democrat Ron Sparks hoping to regulate gambling in the state.
