Tom Graves Comes Out on Top

The special election happened in Georgia today for Nathan Deal’s seat in the 9th.

With 97 percent reporting, former state Rep. Tom Graves (R) had 34 percent and former state Sen. Lee Hawkins (R) had 23 percent. The Associated Press called the race as headed to a runoff with 80 percent reporting.

Typically in Georgia if a candidate goes into a runoff with a 10 point lead or more, he’ll win.We need to make sure it happens. Tom Graves is the right guy for this district and the right guy for conservatives.
