BTH: Shelby County Party Leaders Discuss 2020 Turnout

Nov 5, 2020


Sixty-five percent of eligible voters in Shelby County came out to the polls for Tuesday's election. Shelby County Republican Chairman Chris Tutor says despite the turnout, the expected “blue wave did not reach the shore,” and many expectations for Democrats in the 2020 election came up short. 

 

Tutor and the Shelby County Democratic Chairman Michael Harris join this week’s WKNO-TV Behind the Headlines with host Eric Barnes and The Daily Memphian’s Bill Dries. Harris discusses how the record early voting turnout showcases Democrat's strong local voting bloc.   

 

In addition, guests analyze the 2020 federal, state and local elections.
