County sides with Kingston, but state goes with Perdue

The July 22 Primary Election Runoff has completed and Screven County was largely in direct opposition to the winners; as county voters picked U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston over David A. Perdue, Michael L. Buck over Richard Woods, and Alisha Thomas Morgan over Valarie D. Wilson.
Statewide each of those runoff elections would go the other direction.
In a shock to the Republican system, Perdue won the runoff by a little more than 10,000 votes (a little more than 1 percent margin of victory in unofficial results) defeating established 11-term Kingston, who conceded Tuesday night after seeing the numbers weren’t in his favor.
Screven County voters gave Kingston 497 votes to Perdue’s 77. Kingston was hoping his South Georgia base would give him the needed push over Perdue, but a poor voter turnout – Screven County was at roughly 9.5 percent turnout and the state’s 9.6 percent turnout – sealed his fate.
Perdue is the former CEO of Reebok and Dollar General, in addition to being the cousin of two-term governor Georgia Sonny Perdue.
Perdue will now face Democrat Michelle Nunn in the upcoming November election for the U.S. Senate spot of retiring Saxby Chambliss.
Nunn’s father, Sam, was a four-term U.S. Senator from Georgia, so she shares a famous name similar to Perdue.
The other election on the Republican ballot was for their nominee to State School Superintendent. Voters in Screven picked Michael L. Buck (276 ballots) over Richard L. Woods (217 ballots). These two will likely wait until a recount as the state’s election results are less clear. As of Wednesday morning voting tabulations show Woods up by 728 votes over Buck.
Buck told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he would request a recount if the margin turns out to be closer than 1 percent and that appeared to be the case as of Wednesday morning.
Woods is a longtime educator from Irwin County making his second bid for superintendent, and Buck is the chief academic officer for the Georgia Department of Education.
Whichever man wins the contest they will face the Democratic candidate Valarie D. Wilson in November. Screven County chose to vote for Wilson’s opposition, Alisha Thomas Morgan, at a total of 101 to 42. Wilson’s statewide win over Morgan was by more than 11,000 votes as of Wednesday.
Wilson is the former chairwoman of the City Schools of Decatur school board.

This election had no unexpected surprises for the Screven County Probate Court staff and went smoothly. The county’s results were uploaded to the state around 8:30 p.m. Out of 7,619 registered voters in the county, only 722 voted in the Primary runoff.
