Mayor of Knox County and proclaimed victory after he led his
opponent by over 4,000 votes with 63% counted according to
the Knoxville News Sentinel.
Jacobs was in the race against Debbie Helsley from the
Democratic party. While he identifies himself as a
Libertarian, Jacobs runs on the Republican ticket.
THANK YOU Knox County for electing me to serve a second
term as your mayor, Jacobs wrote in a tweet. I am so
grateful for the support you have shown me and my family
throughout my campaign for re-election, and will continue to
do all I can to serve you to the best of my ability.

continue to work hard for the brightest future of Knox
Jacobs last appeared on WWE television at SummerSlam in
Nashville where he announced the attendance and then set the
ring posts on fire in typical Kane fashion.
