Rep. Doug McKillip has decided against seeking a recount in HD117. Challenger Regina Quick defeated McKillip 50.44% to 49.56%, a mere 64 votes.
In fact, McKillip said, he sent a congratulatory e-mail to the winner of the Republican primary, Athens attorney Regina Quick, on Wednesday
“I enjoyed my time in public service and I hope she does, too,” McKillip said.
Now that his legislative term is winding down, McKillip said he’s looking forward to spending more time with his family.
Having worked with Doug for the past two years I know his conversion to Christianity was genuine. It’s tough to explain that in a political campaign. I wish Doug and his family the best and congratulate Regina Quick on her victory.
