The wealthy Nashville suburb of Franklin roundly rejected what is likely the most controversial mayoral candidate in its history, deciding Gabrielle Hanson's myriad scandals—including several instances in which she cozied up to white supremacists—were too much to stomach.

The local real estate developer lost with just 20 percent of the vote, records showed, keeping the city of 85,000's longtime incumbent, Ken Moore, in office another four years.

Other MAGA candidates in the city fared largely the same, with a trio of alderman hopefuls supported by what Nashville's NewsChannel 5 described as a "far-right" PAC called Williamson Families sent packing by voters.
