Tennessee Elects Bill Lee Governor
The people of Tennessee voted to elect Republican Bill Lee as governor, defeating Democrat Karl Dean.
26 Independents also ran for governor, each receiving 0.2 percent or less of the vote.
Many of the Independents were part of the Libertarian Party, which placed 15 candidates on the ballot to protest Tennessee law which has fewer restrictions on Independent candidates being added to the ballot.
Lee has worked for his family’s construction business, the Lee Company, serving as CEO and Chairman prior to his candidacy. He also helps run the family’s Triple L Ranch.
Lee is native to Tennessee, continuing to live in Franklin.
