Davidson County Chancellor Claudia Bonnyman has dismissed Tennessee Democrats' lawsuit against the Hamilton County Election Commission, which was filed when commissioners let Republican Robin Smith replace state Rep. Gerald McCormick, R-Chattanooga, on the primary ballot after the withdrawal deadline for the Aug. 2 election, the Times Free Press reports. State Democrats could still choose to appeal to the Tennessee Court of Appeals or file suit in Hamilton County Chancery Court. Early voting in the election has already begun.
