MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Incumbent Sen. Lamar Alexander is still in the fight for his seat.

His main challenger was State Representative Joe Carr. Some also said a third viable candidate was Memphian Dr. George Flinn.

Alexander received 50 percent of the vote, Carr had 40 percent, and Flinn had 5 percent.
