DesJarlais Lead Holds as Votes Come In

Few provisional ballots remain to be counted in the 4th Congressional District race between U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais and state Sen. Jim Tracy, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports. DesJarlais spokesman Robert Jameson said, "we believe it's statistically impossible" for Tracy to pick up the additional votes needed to win. "At this point we believe the senator should concede for the good of the district and the Tennessee Republican Party."
