THOMPSON’S STATION, Tenn. (AP) - Former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Victoria Jackson has lost her bid as an independent candidate for a seat on the Williamson County Commission.

Jackson, who calls herself a tea party conservative, moved to Thompson’s Station last year and said she filed as an independent because she’s “very disappointed with the Republican Party.”

The Tennessean (https://tnne.ws/1q001hp) reports Jackson received 632 votes. Two others received more votes - Judy Lynch Herbert with 1,422 and Betsy Hester with 1,380. The County Commission has two commissioners in each of its 12 districts.

Jackson had made appearances at multiple political events in Middle Tennessee since making her home there.
