ATLANTA — Fourteen candidates — seven Republicans and seven Democrats — are vying to become Georgia’s next governor.
Meanwhile, Congressional incumbents face primary competition — including Democrats John Barrow, Hank Johnson and David Scott and Republican Tom Graves. Graves was elected about a month ago to replace Nathan Deal, who is running in today’s Republican gubernatorial primary.
But, with so many candidates running for a number of statewide offices, Tuesday’s election may just be the end of round one. Runoffs are just about guaranteed in a number of races.
