In today's Knoxville News-Sentinel there was a report that Stephen Mark Cawood has no opponent. This was a simple mistake. It will be corrected in the Monday edition.
The democrat incumbent received 700 of 861 of the democrat sixth district votes. This is shocking that for a democrat incumbent of nearly 20 years, running without opposition that the voters in his own party would reject him.
His opponent is Karns native and current Sixth District School Board member Chuck James. Unlike the democrat incumbent Mr. James faced a tough primary battle by Scott Russell. Scott ran a good campaign and will be an asset to the Republican party in the future.
In the Republican primary Chuck James garnered 1469 votes and Russell received 987 votes, either one of these guys obtained more votes than the democrat incumbent.
