Some primary elections not really over


— Last month’s Republican Primary not really ‘over’ with runoff vote scheduled —

Republican voters in Fayette County must focus on Georgia’s 3rd US Congressional Primary Run-off … and here’s why!

To win the election, a candidate must receive 50% plus 1 vote of all the votes cast throughout the entire 3rd Congressional District.

In Fayette County, you would also think that Mike Crane came in second because of his vote count in Fayette County. That would be also wrong. There are 15 counties (some whole, some part) contained within the border of the 3rd District.

Here are the final numbers:

Brian Jack received 32,876 votes (46.7%)

Mike Dugan received 17,520 votes (34.89%)

Mike Crane received 11,182 votes (15.99%)

Philip Singleton received 4,743 votes (6.7%)

Jim Bennett received 4,076 votes (5.79%).

For more information, please see:

Those results mandate a run-off for the Republican nomination on the November ballot.

As notices are being sent and door knockers are spreading the word, they are learning that most voters believe Brian Jack already won the race and are unaware of the need for a run-off.

So, Republicans need to vote in the run-off election on Tuesday, June 18th.

“Advanced In Person” or Early voting will be open from June 10 to June 14, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Republicans need to vote in this run-off. Finish what you started in May. Also, there is no requirement that you had to vote in May to be eligible to vote in the run-off. — By Cathy Vaught.
