On November 8, Blackburn faced fellow Republicans Matt Brass, Mike Crane, Kyle Frank, Dale Pepper, Edward Stone, and Mark Washington as well as Democrats Wayne Seabolt and Jammie Williams. Cynthia Bennett ran as a nonpartisan candidate. Since no candidate received a majority of the vote, the top two vote getters--Blackburn and Crane--proceeded to a runoff election on December 6 where Blackburn was defeated.
