Republican Rep. ChuckÂ Fleischmann won his contested primary tonight, dispatching dairy magnate Scottie Mayfield and 25-year-old Weston Wamp.
With 100 percent of precincts in the 3rd district reporting, Fleischmann got 39.1 percent to Mayfieldâ€™s 31 percent and Wampâ€™s 28.7 percent, according to the Associated Press.
The race presented some significant challenges for Fleischmann, a freshman.Â A lot of the redrawn seat was new turf to him, and both his opponents started with names that were familiar to voters. Mayfield was the longtime spokesman and CEO of a popular milk and ice cream company. Wamp is the son of former Rep. Zach Wamp (R-Tenn.), Fleischmannâ€™s predecessor.
