DesJarlais and Tracy Total Votes so Far
Our Affiliate WKRN reports, that Grundy County's late vote total puts incumbent Scott DesJarlais in the lead.
The secretary of state's office says the late totals are in part due to a substantial number of write in ballots that had to be hand counted.
Both DesJarlais and his opponent Senator Jim Tracy gave victory speeches on election night 2 weeks ago.
But the unofficial tally shows Tracy trailing behind by 38 votes.
Since then, county after county has counted their votes.
Marion and one other county are set to certify their votes Thursday.
After that, Tracy has 5 days to consider a challenge.
