NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 1, 2019) — It’s Election Day in Nashville, and Mayor David Briley faces multiple challengers…including outspoken conservative Dr. Carol Swain.
Briley is running for re-election for the first time in the city where Democratic voters dominate. Along with Swain, Briley faces Democratic state Rep. John Ray Clemmons and Metro Councilman John Cooper, the brother of Democratic U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper.
In a recent article, Swain is described as a “no-holds-barred black, Christian Republican conservative” who is shaking up an election “in traditionally Democratic Nashville, a blue stronghold in a red state.”
If no candidate receives more than half of Thursday’s vote, the two top vote-getters will head to a Sept. 12 runoff.
