In alphabetical order by last name.

Michelle Carringer - former 2003-2005 First Vice Chair of the Knox County GOP. During her term as First Vice Chair, she maintained her residence out of the country leaving Chad Tindell to run it all by himself. She is the daughter of current GOP Chair, Irene McCrary.

James McMillan - a farmer and 2006 failed County Commission candidate, he lost the Republican primary to R. Larry Smith.

Chuck Severance - the son of Former State Representative Charles Severance. His mother, Phyllis Severance worked in the administration of Former Knox County Executive Tommy Schumpert.

Lillian Williams - longtime successful business owner of Willow Bay Gallery in Powell. She is very active with the Powell, Halls and Karns Republican clubs. She was likely a candidate to pursue this seat in 2010 when Scott Moore would have been ineligible to run for reelection due to the term limits provision of the County Charter.
