It's No Contest for Shelby County Democrats, as Van Turner Wins Chairmanship Easily 

Expectations of a donneybrook at Saturday’s convention of the Shelby County Democratic Party at Airways Middle School were high and based on two factors – what was expected to be a knock-down, drag-out, fight-to-the-finish between chairmanship contenders Van Turner and Jay Bailey and the prospect of prolonged procedural battle over a rules change expanding the membership of the party’s executive committee from 71 to 83.

Neither of these showdowns happened. Turner won the chairmanship easily, by a vote of 49-32. And there was no fuss and bother over the rules change, which had been accepted before Saturday’s convention formally convened.
