Both the Constitution Party and Green Party primaries had only a single candidate. These four candidates will face three independents in November, one of whom is unofficially affiliated with the Libertarian Party.

Brown generally performed better in the central and western parts of the state while second-place finisher and former Sullivan County Supervisor William H. "John" McKamey performed better in eastern Tennessee, particularly Knoxville and Chattanooga.
