Other Georgia Run Off Election Results
The race for the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate was not the only race on the runoff ballot on Tuesday in Georgia. Here are results from some of the other races.
The Democratic nomination for state school superintendent goes to Valerie Wilson who beat Alisha Thomas Morgan. Much of their campaign focused on support for charter schools. Morgan is a former state representative and Valarie Wilson is a former Decatur school board member. Wilson will face the winner of the race for the Republican nomination for state superintendent. Only a few hundred votes separate Mike Buck and Richard Woods. There could be a recount in this race.
The race to fill the U.S. House seat being vacated by Republican Jack Kingston is going to Buddy Carter. He defeated Savannah surgeon Bob Johnson. The GOP race to replace Congressman Paul Broun was won by talk show host Jody Hice. And the Republican nomination for the seat held by Representative Phil Gingrey goes to Barry Loudermilk, who defeated former U.S. Representative Bob Barr.
Incumbent DeKalb County Sheriff Jeff Mann easily won the seat over former Dekalb CEO Vernon Jones. Roughly three out of four voters cast a ballot for Mann.
In the race for Fulton County Commission District five seat, Attorney Marvin Arrington Jr. defeated former Atlanta school board member Brenda Muhammed.
