Results show that Sam Tisdale lost Tuesday's democratic primary to current Sheriff James Moore after receiving 39% of the votes.
'I feel like there are a whole lot of discrepancies going on,' says Tisdale. 'They're saying ain't but 3,000 people voted in Kemper County, and they are telling us there is a heavy turnout. That is a very low turnout, because we have more than 7,000 voters here in Kemper County. I am planning to contest it. My campaign came out of my pocket and I'm not going to just sit down and give it to him. By no means am I conceding,' says Tisdale.
The ultimate winner in that primary will face an independent candidate during the general elections in November.
