The candidates, Michael Andrews, Fletcher Burkhardt, Indya Kincannon, Eddie Mannis, Calvin Skinner and Marshall Stair, campaigned hard over the course of the year, but the breakout stars were Mannis and Kincannon.

As of 8:30 p.m., Eddie Mannis was in the lead with Stair and Kincannon behind.

However, Kincannon upped Stair and ended up having less than 300 more votes than Stair.

"I’ve been fortunate to call Knoxville my home for my entire life," said Mannis on his website. "This is a city I love and believe in."

Mannis calls his list of top priorities the "Knoxville First Initiative." The list includes having strong and safe neighborhoods, economic vibrancy, health and staying people-focused.

Kincannon's website lists her top priorities as sustainable economic development, quality schools, strong neighborhoods, healthy communities, transparent government and efficient services, affordable housing and homelessness, opioid epidemic and public safety, and civility.

The race is non-partisan and the general election is set for November 5.
