THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -
The race for a south Georgia senate seat is entering a new phase, now that a crowded field has been whittled to two candidates.
None of the six candidates in the District 11 special election got enough votes Tuesday to win outright, so there will be a runoff.
Bainbridge City Councilman and OBGYN Dr. Dean Burke earned 42.6 percent of the vote.
Coolidge minister and former state representative and Congressional nominee Mike Keown got 37.4 percent. Both men say they are more than qualified for the position.
"With my background in medicine and in the health care system. My background as a business owner. My background in agriculture. My background and knowledge with the water situation in southwest Georgia. All of those make me the most qualified candidate," said Burke.
"I am the only one is this campaign with any experience at the state level. So I'm the one that is job ready. I'm the one who is going to be ready to go to work. The session will already be started and will probably be at around day 15 by the time whoever wins this race gets there," said Keown.
