How We Voted
Tuesday, 22 July 2014

July 22-- Trailing about 8,000 votes four hours after the polls closed Tuesday night, Congressman Jack Kingston conceded the Republican primary runoff election for the U.S. Senate to political newcomer David Perdue.

"This is bigger than either one of us.  This is about changing the direction of the United States of America and we've got to get rid of Harry Reid's leadership in order to do that," Kingston said.

For years, Congressman Kingston represented this part of Georgia in Washington and Tuesday voters in Toombs, Montgomery and Treutlen Counties said they'd like for him to be their Republican U.S. Senator.

Kingston beat Perdue handily in all three counties with 76% of the vote in Toombs County, 73% in Montgomery County and 55% in Treutlen County.

Even though Congressman Kingston did well in south Georgia, Perdue won on the strength of votes in the metro Atlanta area and in north Georgia.

Perdue will face Democrat Michelle Nunn in the November general election.

In the Republican primary runoff for State School Superintendent, Mike Buck won over Richard Woods by slight margins in Toombs, Montgomery and Treutlen counties.  Buck got 52% of the vote in Toombs, 50% in Montgomery and 58% in Treutlen.

The winner statewide will face Democrat Valerie Wilson in the November election.  Local Democrats gave Wilson large majorities over Alisha Morgan including 80% in  Toombs County, 69% in Montgomery County and 72% in Treutlen County.
