NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Six congressional incumbents have defeated their challengers in Tennessee's primary election.

Republican Reps. Chuck Fleischmann and Diane Black won their races, following some of the state's toughest campaigns.

The other winners were Republican Reps. Jimmy Duncan in the 2nd District, Stephen Fincher in the 8th District and Scott DesJarlais in the 4th District. Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen prevailed in the 9th District.

Republican U.S. Sen. Bob Corker also easily won nomination.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (BURRISS)  --  In case you haven’t noticed, it’s an election year, and if there’s one thing we’ve come to expect, it’s conflicting statements by candidates on almost every issue imaginable.
