Kustoff takes aim at House seat after winning GOP primary

Republican congressional candidate David Kustoff says that he will work to improve national security and cut taxes for farmers if he is elected to the U.S. House in November.
    
Kustoff, a former U.S. attorney, won the GOP primary for the 8th Congressional District in Tennessee on Thursday. He defeated 12 other opponents who jumped at the chance to fill a House seat that opened up when Republican U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher announced he would not seek re-election after three terms.
    
The 8th District stretches from suburban Shelby County through 14 other, mostly rural counties in west Tennessee. The 8th District seat is considered to be solidly Republican, presenting a challenge to the Democratic primary winner, Rickey Hobson.
