The May 20th primary election is over and most of the candidates have been selected. There are a few runoffs, but most results were decided. Secretary of State Brian Kemp certified and reported the results on May 27, 2014 at sos.ga.gov. The results for the statewide races are as follows.

Doreen Carter decisively beat Gerald Beckun in the race for Secretary of State. Greg Hect had no opposition in the race for Attorney General. Chris Irvin had no opposition in his race for Agriculture Commissioner. Liz Johnson won decisively over Keith Heard in the race for Commissioner of Insurance. Robbin Shipp was unopposed in her race for Commissioner of Labor. Connie Stokes had no competition in her race for Lieutenant Governor.

Michelle Nunn as predicted and expected easily won her U.S. Senate race to replace Saxby Chambliss. Her family name recognition and her fund raising have been her selling points. She is well positioned to take on Jack Kingston or David Perdue in November. This is a U.S. Senate race that many around the country are watching. Jason Carter, another candidate with a family political legacy, had no opposition in his bid to unseat Governor Nathan Deal. Rasmussen at rasmussenreports.com had a poll this week that shows Carter at 48% to Deal's 41%.

Alisha Thomas Morgan and Valerie Wilson are in a runoff to be decided on July 22, 2014. After the runoff it is full speed ahead to the November 4, 2014 election.
