Open Tennessee House seat won by Davis

Story Tools

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (CNN) -- State Sen. Lincoln Davis defeated Republican Janice Bowling in race for the state's open 4th District House seat, CNN projected.

Local Democratic leaders, including former Vice President Al Gore, united strongly behind Davis, a pro-gun, anti-abortion rights activist who said he would join the Blue Dog Coalition, a group of conservative House Democrats, if elected.

Due to Davis' conservative stance, Bowling had a hard time tagging Davis as a liberal.

Bowling is a former aide to incumbent Rep. Van Hilleary, who chose to run for governor instead of re-election to the House. Democrats in the state Legislature also dramatically redrew the district and it offered House Democrats one of the year's best, if most unlikely, pick-up opportunities.
