By a large percentage, Rep. Diane Black walked away from competitors, holding onto her nomination as the Republican candidate for U.S. House of Representatives District 6 seat.
Black collected 57 percent of the votes in Wilson County, tallying more than 30,000 votes across the entire 6th District.
She has served three terms in the U.S. Congress.
Her closest competitor, Joe Carr, collected 39 percent of the votes in Wilson County and 15,000 votes across the district.

Donald Strong and Tommy N. Hay came in a distant third and fourth place, garnering less than 300 votes each in the county, less than three percentage points each.
