ALBANY, GA (WALB) - There will be a runoff to fill the Dougherty County commission seat left vacated by the death of Art Searles. Last night, none of the three candidates received a majority vote, forcing the top two candidates, Transportation consultant Gloria Gaines and Pastor Henry Brown into a runoff.

Rev. Brown said, "Four more weeks of hard work and hard campaigning and trying to get the people back out to vote and convincing them that I'm the best candidate for the job."

Gaines said, "I am going to give Henry a run for his money, but I know it's going to be a clean fight, but he needs to be prepared." The runoff will for the commission race has not been set.
