In what was projected to be an easy victory for Republican incumbent Jim Coppinger in the Hamilton County Mayoral primary election today, vote counts have shown a clear victory for challenger Basil Marceaux.

Marceaux has received national attention for being a perennial candidate with unconventional viewpoints, and he is a resident of Soddy Daisy, a former Marine and businessman who has fought against “traffic stop slavery,” car emissions testing and gold fringes on flags.

If elected to political office, Marceaux has vowed to move the Tennessee capital from Nashville to Chattanooga, force all citizens to carry guns and deport anyone who looks “like a Mexican.”

Marceaux will face independent candidate Richard Ford in the mayoral election in August.
