2014 United States House of Representatives elections in Tennessee will be held on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 to elect the nine U.S. Representatives from the state of Tennessee, one from each of the state's nine congressional districts. The elections will coincide with the elections of other federal and state offices, including a gubernatorial election and an election to the U.S. Senate.
District 4 [ edit ]
Scott DesJarlais has represented Tennessee's 4th congressional district since 2011. State Senator Jim Tracy will challenge DesJarlais in the primary. As of the end of June 2013, Tracy had raised nearly $750,000 (including over $300,000 in the second quarter of 2013) for his bid. [1 ] [2 ]
Murfreesboro resident and teacher Steve Lane announced that he would run against DesJarlais and seek the Republican nomination.
State Representative Joe Carr sought the nomination, but decided to run against Lamar Alexander in the Senate race instead. State Representative [4 ] Kevin Brooks, former Bradley County Sheriff Tim Gobble; and Forrest Shoaf, a former executive at Cracker Barrel, may also seek the Republican nomination. [5 ] [6 ] [7 ]
