Congressional runoff results vary in Georgia

A total of four Georgia congressional seats went to the polls on June 21, two of which featured surprises and two of which included presidential candidate Donald Trump losing.

In the House, Republicans are hoping to regain the majority they lost last year by winning five seats to take control of the 435-member chamber.

Mark Gonsalves easily defeated Michael Corbin in the May 24 primary for the 7th Congressional District in suburban Atlanta.

Chris West overtook Jeremy Hunt in the 2nd District runoff after Hunt had garnered the most votes on May 24 and West had placed second.

In the May 24 primary, Collins gained 25.6 percent of the vote while Jones finished second with 21.6 percent in a field of eight candidates. On June 21, Collins received 74.6 percent. He will face Tabitha Johnson-Green in the general election on Nov. 8. Green defeated Jessica Fore in the Democratic primary.
