SHELBY COUNTY, TN -

(WMC) - Deidre Malone will run in the general election as the democratic candidate for Shelby County mayor against the incumbent mayor, Mark Luttrell.

Malone ran against Shelby County Commissioner Steve Mulroy and Rev. Kenneth Whalum Jr. on Tuesday's primary election in the democratic race.

The former commissioner had 1,184 more votes than Whalum. Mulroy conceded. Luttrell's primary opponent, Ernest Lunati, received only three percent of the votes in the Republican race.

"We're ready for Luttrell, and I think he knows it," said Malone. "We've had an opportunity to look at some things he's not worked on and the things we're excited about working on, and so we're looking forward to sharing that message over the summer to Democrats, Independents, and Republicans that want to vote for a Democrat."

The general election is in August.
