Woo Hoo! Republican Marsh Won!

Tonight in a Special Election trucking company owner Pat Marsh, the Republican candidate won the 62nd District TN House seat. That strengthens the Republican control to 2 seats in the State House. The seat was a seat held by Democrats for a long, long time.

Marsh defeated Democrat candidate Ty Cobb, brother to the former Democrat 62nd District House Representative Curt Cobb. Curt Cobb resigned to take a different government job. Thus the reason for the special election.

Check out the preliminary news report from the Shelbyville Times-Gazette, here.
