Fleischmann Wins Re-Election To House District 3

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

Congressman Chuck Fleischmann was leading Democratic challenger Dr. Mary Headrick in early returns by a comfortable margin, though it was closer than expected in Hamilton County.

It was Fleischmann 35,800 and Headrick 31,055 after early voting in Hamilton County.

Later returns put the Chattanooga attorney up 157,725 to 91,031. Independent Matthew Deniston had 7,897.

Rep. Fleischmann had fought off several top competitors, including Weston Wamp and Scottie Mayfield, in a hard-fought primary.

He had outpolled Robin Smith to win the office after Zach Wamp finally stepped down to run for governor.

Dr. Headrick defeated Bill Taylor, another political newcomer, in the primary.
