As expected, Tennessee voted resoundingly for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney despite President Barack Obama's re-election.
The former Massachusetts governor secured the Volunteer State's 11 electoral votes in a comprehensive victory.
Romney bested President Barack Obama across the state, with the Democratic incumbent winning traditional strongholds in Nashville and Memphis, plus a smattering of rural counties in southwest Tennessee.
Unlike its neighbors Virginia and North Carolina, Tennessee was never really a factor in the election, with both candidates largely ignoring the state spending precious little money and holding an insignificant number of campaign events here.
Obama won Davidson County handily with nearly 60 percent of the vote.
