ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Karen Handel made history. The former secretary of state is headed for a runoff race for the Republican nomination for governor, something never done by a woman in Georgia.
Handle led the race all night, and it appears she'll finish first. She would face Nathan Deal in a runoff in three weeks.
In the Lt. Governor race, Carol Porter had a better night than her husband Dubose who ran for governor. She defeated Tricia Carpenter McCracken in the Democratic Primary for the right to take on Lt. Governor Casey Cagle in November.
Brian Kemp took over as Secretary of State when Karen Handel resigned to run for governor. He wins the right to run for a full term in November.
On the Democratic side, veteran state senator Gail Buckner from Clayton County will be in a runoff. She'll likely face either Georganna Sinkfield or Angela Moore.
In the State School Superintendent race, on the Democratic side, former Atlanta school board president Joe Martin wins a three-person race outright.
Who will he face in November? It's a close race in the Republican primary between John Barge and Richard Woods.
In the race to replace John Oxendine as Insurance Commissioner, there will be a runoff perhaps between Ralph Hudgins and Maria Sheffield.
The winner will face Democrat Mary Squires in November. She was unopposed tonight.
Longtime Agriculture Commissioner Tommy Irvin is retiring. Gary Black wins the Republican primary for that office and will take on Democrat J. B. Powell in November.
Mark Butler easily won the Republican nomination for Labor Commissioner. He'll face former Speaker of the House Terry Coleman who cruised to victory on the Democratic side.
