Carroll County resident Mike Dugan defeated former Rep. Bill Hembree 56-44% in the Senate District 30 Special Election Primary Runoff tonight.
Dugan was significantly outspent in this contest. His home county, Carroll, went for him by a margin of about 3,000 to 1,000. Hembree carried the other two counties of Douglas and Paulding but turnout was extremely light in those.
Congratulations to Mike Dugan. However, Dugan will still face a Libertarian in the upcoming Special General Election for the seat. No Democrat filed for the seat.
