Republican politician Mary Littleton representing District 78 of the Tennessee State House of Representative was re-elected on Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
Littleton was first elected on January 8, 2013. She will continue to represent Cheatham County and the eastern-half of Dickson County, Tennessee.
Democrat Travis Staten, candidate challenging Littleton for the 78th District seat would have made history if he’d won the election as the first gay representative of the Tennessee General Assembly. Staten is a bail bondsman in Dickson County, Tennessee.
