Albany - - The House District 151 race is down to two democratic candidates.

Incumbent Freddie Powell Sims faces former State Representative Lawrence Roberts on Tuesday's election.

 Roberts ran against Powell two years ago but lost. He says he's running again because he has experience the district could really use in Atlanta.

He worked 12 years in the General Assembly, 10 of those years serving on the appropriations committee and 2 years serving on the budget committee.  

"My 12 years in office we didn't lose one single project, not one single business did we lose in 12 years," Roberts says.

Roberts was recently sued and found to have breeched a real estate contract. He was ordered to pay more than $100,000 to the company.

Roberts says he's appealing that ruling.
