Early voting in Tennessee ended with a resounding advantage for the Republican Party going into Election Day on March 1 as balloters voted 2-to-1 in the GOP primary.“These results are indicative of where the two parties are right now in our state,” said Tennessee Republican Party executive director Brent Leatherwood after the conclusion of early voting Tuesday. “Given these early voting results, we are looking at nothing short of a massive Republican turnout for Election Day in Tennessee.”His comments come after early voters overwhelmingly voted Republican by a count of 257,209 to 128,374 statewide.Normally Democratic Warren County came close to following this trend as local residents voted Republican 1,725 to 963 for Democrats. A total of 2,688 people voted early in Warren County.
