Federal District Court Judge Kevin Sharp has refused to void the Tennessee Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate, which was won by a candidate the party has disavowed. Sharp ruled today that the lawsuit filed by losing candidate Larry Crim was improper because it was not filed against an individual. Crim had sued the state Division of Elections and the Tennessee Democratic Party trying to keep Mark Clayton, the winner of the Aug. 2 primary, off the November ballot.
