Former County Commissioner Finbarr Saunders will now face Republican activist Sharon Welch in the November run off.
Former Compassion Knoxville Co-Chair Ron Peabody finished third with 11.8% of the vote. Terry Milligan garnered 8.33% of the vote and finished fourth.
This is another race that Sandra Clark, E.W. Scripps writer of the Free bird cage liner Shopper News missed the prediction. Clark predicted a Saunders -v- Peabody run off.
