NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WJHL) — Incumbent state Rep. John Holsclaw has won the Republican primary in Tennessee House District 4.
Holsclaw faced a challenge from two other Republicans, Bob Acuff and Tim Lingerfelt, in his bid for a fourth term in the General Assembly.
The 57-year-old lawmaker introduced legislation in 2019 that became Tennessee’s hands-free driving law.
He is chair of the Employee Affairs Subcommittee.
Holsclaw will face Democrat Bobby Harrell in the November general election.
District 4 includes all of Unicoi County and part of Carter County.
