    Default [Glenn Jacobs] wins the Republican primary in Tennessee mayoral race

    In the ring, he’s Kane, a “monstrous” wrestler with a “sadistic” streak. But to East Tennesseans, he’s also Glenn Jacobs, the owner of a local insurance firm who wants to “do his part” to grow small business and shrink big government.

    In a battle Tuesday between the two, it looks like Jacobs, who’s running for mayor of Knox County, Tenn., won. The 7-foot-tall, 300-pound WWE athlete clinched the Republican primary election by just 17 votes.

    “A lot of people look at me and say, ‘Oh, he’s that wrestler guy. That’s why people voted for him,’” Jacobs, 51, told Knox News. “That may have gotten my foot in the door with some people. Certainly, the novelty of someone like me running in a race like this, but in the end it was the message.”

    In other cities, Nashville mayor David Briley saw his 36% with the transit vote. That little $9Billion boondoggle went down in flames.

    Briley must be a big name there. I usually jump on the Briley Parkway when I pass through Nashville.

    I think it really died with Megan Barry's political career. She should come back as a reality TV star though. That worked for Kim Kardashian.

    Briley Parkway is named after his grandfather who was also a mayor of Nashville.

    I don't think they're nearly as powerful. Dailey would have gotten that train vote through.
