Georgia: Special Election Will Fill Rest of Deal’s Term

Voters head to the polls Tuesday for the all-party special election to replace Rep. Nathan Deal (R), who resigned from Congress to run for governor.

Most insiders expect that the crowded special contest won’t be decided before a June 8 runoff.

The two best bets for making that runoff are former state Sen. Lee Hawkins (R) and former state Rep. Tom Graves (R)

Hawkins has put nearly $150,000 into his own race, and Graves is endorsed by FreedomWorks and the Club for Growth.

Voters in Nebraska and West Virginia also will vote Tuesday in regular party primaries.
