State Sen. Jim Tracy overwhelmingly defeated challenger Matt Randolph in the Republican Party primary Thursday for the 14th District in the Tennessee Senate – a win that secures the Shelbyville native to a third four-year term.

"I am very honored and humbled that the people chose me to represent them for four more years in the state Senate," Tracy said, during an interview at the Rutherford County Election Commission in Murfreesboro. "I want to continue making sure Tennessee is a business friendly state, so that we can continue attracting jobs for our citizens."

Tracy cruised to victory with 4,467 votes, compared with 734 cast for Randolph, a former child abuse investigator from Ardmore, who graduated in 1998 from the University of Alabama with a bachelor's degree in business management.
