TN Politics: Shelby County Democrats Flex Big Ballot Muscle
Shelby County voters spent a good deal of time at the polls Thursday deciding scores of races, from federal and state primaries to dozens of local judgeships.
Memphis voters said a resounding "no" to extending term limits for Memphis mayor and city council members. They also voted out long-time Republican District Attorney General Amy Weirich and replaced her with Democrat Steve Mulroy.
Political analyst Otis Sanford says the big win for Democrats represents backlash to Republicans' rightward march on issues such as abortion, education, guns, and healthcare.
