While Republican U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais may have persevered over a series of damaging revelations to win a second term in Congress, he all but exhausted his campaign account to do so. DesJarlais, who admitted he had sexual relationships with patients and once urged one of them to seek an abortion, spent $1.25 million on his campaign to defeat Democratic challenger Eric Stewart of Winchester and was left with just $15,660 on hand when the dust settled. DesJarlais was left largely isolated in Congress following his victory, but has rebuffed calls that he either resigns or abandons plans to run for another term.

DesJarlais is a Jasper physician who now represents Rutherford County and 15 others in Middle and East Tennessee.
