1st District House update

U.S. House District 1 GOP
35% of 245 Precincts Reporting
David Davis 7,183 22%
Richard S. Venable 6,570 20%
Phil Roe 6,151 19%
Larry Waters 5,027 15%
Richard S. Roberts 4,891 15%
Vance W. Cheek Jr. 1,297 4%
Peggy Parker Barnett 897 3%
Dan Smith 417 1%
Bill F. Breeding Jr. 268 1%
Colquitt Brackett 118 1%
Claude Cox 93 1%
Douglas Heinsohn 86 1%
John Grose 66 1%

I will not call this race until sometime tomorrow, largely because so many precincts have yet to report, but if the trend continues and the percentages remain static through the night, it would appear that David Davis may be my next United States Congressman. Davis enjoyed the advantage of an endorsement from Tennessee Right to Life. I had expected Vance Cheek would fare better than he is apparently faring. I am also stunned that the well-funded Richard Roberts is running fifth.
