Incumbent Scott DesJarlais won the Republican primary in Tennessee’s 4th Congressional District against two opponents. DesJarlais is seeking a sixth term in Congress and will face Democratic nominee Christopher Hale in November.
DesJarlais, a physician from Jasper, has survived cancer and a series of revelations that included affairs with patients.
DesJarlais also urged a mistress to seek an abortion and once held a gun in his mouth for hours outside his ex-wife’s room.
He has since said he opposes abortion rights.
