Marsh Wins GOP Nomination in House District 62

Pat Marsh beat his closest competitor by more than a 4-to-1 margin Thursday to win the Republican nomination in a special election for the vacant state House District 62 seat.
That sets up an Oct. 13 general election contest between Marsh and Ty Cobb II, who was unopposed for the Democratic nomination.
District-wide, Marsh drew 1,826 votes to Bobby Scott’s 397, Casey Walters’ 348 and Joseph Byrd’s 48.
Cobb got 557 votes.
Marsh, a Shelbyville trucking company owner, and Cobb, a UPS driver, seek to succeed Cobb’s brother, former Rep. Curt Cobb, who resigned to take a Bedford County position.
The district includes all of Bedford County and parts of Lincoln and Rutherford counties.
