MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Congressman Steve Cohen will continue to serve the 9th District of Tennessee, including Memphis and Shelby County, after results were totaled on election night.
Cohen comfortably won the Democratic primary back in August against challenger Corey Strong. And on election night he defeated Republican candidate Charlotte Bergmann, according to the Associated Press.
Within the past year in office, one local issue Cohen focused on was addressing bicycle and pedestrian safety on the streets of Memphis. The Bluff City tops the list of metro areas where pedestrians are most in danger, according to a report from Smart Growth America.
Cohen has served Tennessee’s 9th District since 2007.
