Tennessee gubernatorial candidate Bill Lee and his wife early voted in Franklin.
A crowd in Williamson County met Republican candidate Lee at the polls Wednesday.
The conservative businessman is chairman of Lee Company and is active on his fourth-generation family farm. Lee told NewsChannel 5 that recent attack ads coming from his opponents shows he's getting people's attention.
"That shows that we have momentum, that people are believing the message and understanding my vision message of what I hope for Tennessee. And I'm keeping my eyes fixed forward on what tn needs and where we're headed," said Lee.
Election day is August 2. Early voting is open through July 28.
