ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Bobby Coleman and his supporters gathered at the government center downtown as the votes were counted.     

They broke into applause when they learned he won. Coleman told WALB he's proud that he and Commissioner Hines ran positive campaigns.

"Boots on the ground works, we rand a grassroots campaign and it paid off and I would like to thank the incumbent, we ran a good race and it was on the issues, there was not mudslinging and this is what politics should be about," said Bobby Coleman.       

Coleman will be sworn in next month.
