In the day today, Knox County, Tennessee, held the government elections to elect the new mayor of Knoxville city. The importance of this fact for the world of professional wrestling and WWE is that the former world champion Kane was elected in a crushing result to obtain 65% of the vote.
Better known by his artistic name within the company, Glenn Jacobs represents the Republican party (one of the two most important in the United States) and obtained the position as a candidate for mayor after overcoming the party’s primary elections by just 23 votes. Experts claimed that Jacobs would win because of the historic tendency on the part of Knox County residents to vote for the Republican party, however, no one expected the expanded margin on his direct rival, Democratic candidate Linda Haney.
Some time ago, Kane declared for the ABC news outlet, Wate, that he looked like the least favorite in the race for the job. “In the primaries, I won by just 23 votes, so each vote counts and I want to make sure I get as many as I can. Since May we have hit doors to continue the process. We also continued the process of meeting with different department heads, school groups, county commissioners, that kind of thing. “
