Posted: Updated:

HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn.- Supporters of incumbent Diane Black have their fingers crossed for a repeat of the 2010 election.

Black was once against facing off against Lou Ann Zelnick for the 6th district seat in Congress. Black has been known to position herself as the "most conservative" member of Congress. Recently she began running adds talking about how frustrated she was the federal government hasn't passed a budget going as far as saying if they don't members of Congress shouldn't receive pay check.

Black and Zelnick will battle it out for US Congressional Sixth District, an area north and east and southeast of Nashville including Sumner, Wilson, Putnam, Cannon and Coffee counties.

A spokesperson for Black said the Congressman did make it back in time to hit many local polls after voting in Washington D.C. Wednesday night. Black spent the rest of the day Thursday with her children and grandchildren after stopping by a number of polling sites in Wilson and Sumner Counties.

By all indications the campaign seems very comfortable expecting a victory based on the numbers they've seen so far.
