Unlikely though it may seem, an unorthodox candidate for the GOP in Knox County, Tennessee, is Glenn Jacobs who is better known as the WWE wrestler Kane. According to the latest vote tallies, it looks like he could even potentially become the mayor.

Tuesday’s primary votes have now been tallied up and the results are looking good for Jacobs. He currently has 17 more votes than his opposition, Brad Anders. The results show that Jacobs has 14,633 votes compared to Anders’ tally of 14,616. The candidate finishing in the third position at this time is Bob Thomas who received 11,296 votes. If the results stand, it will mean that Jacobs becomes the party’s nominee for the position of mayor.

Course - Glenn - Jacobs - Persona - Day

Of course, Glenn Jacobs toned down his somewhat intimidating wrestling persona on the day of voting and appeared looking like a serious political candidate. While his wrestling fans are more accustomed to his wild and threatening look in the ring, he looked very conservative on the voting day where the polling was held at Austin East High School. Jacobs said he was looking forward to meeting the great folks from the local area and posted comments regarding this on his social media accounts.

Like all candidates, Jacobs ran a platform based on a range of issues that impact on the lives of people living in the local area. His specific areas of focus are lowering taxes, improving the area’s infrastructure, making positive changes to education, creating jobs, providing a safer community, improving transparency, and limiting government.
