Voting begins tomorrow in a special election for voters in eastern Shelby County and Tipton County, The Daily Memphian reports. This will be the first contested general election race for state Senate District 32 in 15 years. Republican nominee Paul Rose of Tipton County and Democratic nominee Eric Coleman of Shelby County are the contenders for the seat held for 16 years by Collierville Republican Mark Norris. The special election was called by former Gov. Bill Haslam following Norris’ resignation to become a federal court judge. The winner serves out the two years remaining in Norris’ term of office, until the end of 2020.
