NASHVILLE (AP) — Freshman State Rep. Julia Hurley has lost her District 32 Republican primary seat to challenger Kent Calfee.

With all precincts reporting Thursday night, Calfee had more than 4,600 votes, or 55 percent, compared with the Lenoir City Republican's 3,700, or 45 percent.

Hurley's behavior made headlines several times during her brief term.

Upon her election to the House in 2010, Hurley drew national attention for crediting her success to the time she spent working at Hooters restaurants, in a two-page article for the chain's magazine.

In June, she was criticized for a YouTube video she posted of her dog Pepper being held outside a moving car for what she called an "air swim."

Hurley's race was among two dozen challenges to GOP incumbents.
