The next celeb to turn political?

Jacobs is leading Anders, 14,633-14,616, by a total of 17 votes.

Of the provisional ballots, 38 were people with no record of being registered voters, 4 were people who did not show a photo ID, and 1 was a person who voted on a paper ballot, according to the Knox County Election Commission. "Thanks to everyone who helped win this historic victory", he wrote.

Jacobs appeared as various characters in WWE, including a dentist called Isaac Yankem, before achieving fame as Kane who the wrestling organisation described as the half-brother of The Undertaker and "a monstrous abomination that seems to have been extracted directly from your childhood nightmares".

Kane aka Glenn Jacobs will shift his focus to the general election to become mayor of Knox County, Tennessee. But to East Tennesseans, he's also Glenn Jacobs, the owner of a local insurance firm who wants to "do his part" to grow small business and shrink big government. Then again, normally, the GOP candidate isn't a 7-foot tall WWE wrestler whose signature move is the "chokeslam from hell". Knox County has more than five times as many Republican voters as Democrats.

So, what happens next? "Together we are going to see how great Knox County can be working together", said Jacobs after the ballots were counted.

According to the report, Jacobs will be running against Democrat Linda Haney in the mayoral race set for August 2, the same day as the Tennessee state primary for U.S. Congress and the U.S. Senate.

Next step, Kane in the White House?
