Weston Wamp, Coty Wamp win Hamilton County Republican nominations for mayor, DA


Chattanooga entrepreneur Weston Wamp won the GOP nomination Tuesday to try to become Hamilton County's next mayor.

Wamp, the 35-year-old son of former U.S. Rep. Zach Wamp, R-Chattanooga, would be the youngest mayor in Hamilton County since the job was created nearly a half century if he defeats an even younger Democratic rival, 25-year-old Matt Adams, in the Aug. 4 general election.

Law enforcement attorney Coty Wamp decisively defeated incumbent Neal Pinkston for the Republican nomination for Hamilton County district attorney. Wamp received more than 70% of the vote.
