For the first time this election cycle, 3rd District Congressional candidate Mary Headrick shared a stage with the Republican she will face in November — although voters will decide in about two weeks whether that will be incumbent U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann or challenger Weston Wamp.

NASHVILLE — The National Rifle Association's political arm has endorsed U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais, R-Tenn., in Tennessee's 4th Congressional District GOP primary and is wishing him "good luck with your campaign."

Early voting in the Aug. 7 primary continues at the following locations: • Hamilton County Election Commission, 700 River Terminal Road, off Amnicola Highway. Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Today kicks off early voting in Tennessee's 2014 primaries and local elections, and officials and community groups alike are urging voters to hit the polls.

NASHVILLE — Voters won't decide this issue until November, but the fundraising, education and organizational battle is already in full swing over a proposed Tennessee constitutional amendment granting state lawmakers more power over abortion.

Three weeks ahead of the Aug. 7 primary — and just before the start of early voting today — Tennessee 3rd Congressional District candidate Weston Wamp faces a federal complaint over his campaign finances.

NASHVILLE — With early voting kicking off Friday in Tennessee's Aug. 7 party primaries, the three major U.S. Senate Republicans' latest campaign finance disclosures show they're ready to rumble.

NASHVILLE — Democrat Lenda Sherrell of Monteagle ramped up her 4th Congressional District bid in the second quarter, with a little help from a $100,000 personal loan as well as $78,670 from contributors.

If 3rd District congressional candidate Weston Wamp has been on paid leave from Lamp Post Group — as a founding partner said early this month — he could find himself in an election finance nightmare.

NASHVILLE — U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais went up with his first television ad on Tuesday that touts his conservative record and slams his GOP primary challenger, state Sen. Jim Tracy, as a supporter of Common Core education standards who "tried to make gas taxes automatic."
