A Couple of Notes from Last Night's District Run-offs

  • The Tennessean refers to a website in the District 11 run-off that may have made a difference in Rick McClintock losing to Darren Jernigan. That website hit Mr. McClintock hard for campaign contributions that he received from developers and construction owners. His online opponents also referred to Mr. McClintock as too "business friendly" and not endorsed by those who actually live in 11.
  • District 33 incumbent Robert Duvall survived his run-off by a mere 52 votes over opponent Page Turner. Mr. Duvall, who showed a propensity to vote with the Council's conservative bloc (Crafton, Tygard, et al.), definitely did not receive a mandate from his constituents.
