NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — With all eyes on the presidential election, the biggest race in Tennessee was the open U.S. Senate seat that Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander is retiring as his term ends.

A handful of U.S. House and legislative seats also remain competitive in the GOP-dominant state. In the Senate race, Republican Bill Hagerty rode President Donald Trump’s endorsement into a win over Democrat Marquita Bradshaw.

Trump has won Tennessee for a second time. Republicans have held both Senate seats in Tennessee since 1994.
