Election history

Elected in 2014. Re-elected in 2022.

Gen. Craig Northcott began his legal career as a deputy prosecutor in Indiana but was eager to return to his hometown of Tullahoma. Upon moving back to Tennessee, Gen. Northcott started a private practice to assist his friends and family with legal matters. He quickly realized he missed the work of being a prosecutor and knew he could have a greater impact on his community through being a DA. Further, as Gen. Northcott explains, he was drawn to being a prosecutor because it allows him “to practice law by living by one rule: Always do the right thing.” Needless to say, after being in private practice for 14 years, he decided to run for District Attorney to pursue this calling.
