NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam has won the Republican primary.

The outcome from Thursday's election was widely expected. Haslam faced no serious opposition in his bid for the November ballot and a chance for a second term.

Unofficial and early results show Haslam with more than 88 percent of the vote, far ahead of his closest rival.

This year's primary was a far cry from Haslam's first run for governor four years ago, when he faced a spirited nomination fight with U.S. Rep. Zach Wamp and state Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey.
