Johnny Houston outpolled incumbent Judge Gary Disheroon in the race for city judge in Red Bank, Tenn. last night.


The Daily Chattanoogan reports that Houston beat Disheroon by a vote of 845 to 695.

As previously reported here at redbankgreen, Houston, a lawyer specializing in DUI cases, had the key endorsements of his mother and wife. Disheroon rallied late in the campaign with public expressions of support from his own sister, parents, and a hunting buddy. But Houston may have pulled away at the end with a just-folks e-mail to redbankgreen that Disheroon did not counter.
