Kustoff wins GOP primary, Hobson wins Democratic primary in Tennessee’s 8th

David Kustoff has won the crowded Republican primary race for the 8th Congressional District seat in Tennessee.
    
Kustoff came out on top in a race that had 13 candidates all vying to replace incumbent Stephen Fincher. Fincher, a Republican from Frog Jump, announced earlier this year that he would retire.
    
Kustoff is a former U.S. attorney who oversaw most of the prosecutions in the Tennessee Waltz case, which snagged five former state lawmakers on bribery charges. He faces Democrat Rickey Hobson in the heavily Republican district.

Hobson had just one opponent in the Democratic primary, Gregory Alan Fry.
