DesJarlais in a Nail-Biter

Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) "was clinging to what appeared to be a narrow victory over challenger Jim Tracy (R), defeating the state senator by 35 votes," the Tennessean reports.

"The results are unofficial. Tennessee does not have an automatic recount law, but a candidate can request one from state and party officials. There also could be uncounted absentee or provisional ballots."

Nashville Public Radio reports Tracy had already declared victory before the last votes were tallied.
