Georgia Election Results | Raffensperger wins GOP secretary of state runoff

Republican Brad Raffensperger will face Democrat John Barrow this fall.

Brad Raffensperger defeated David Belle Isle Tuesday night to win the GOP nomination for secretary of state.

Georgians will choose a new secretary of state for the first time in eight years.

Raffensperger and Barrow are seeking to replace Brian Kemp, who defeated Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle in a runoff for the GOP governor's nomination.

Georgia may replace its electronic voting machines with a system that has a paper backup. Whoever wins the Nov. 6 election will oversee that system's implementation.

Belle Isle is a former Alpharetta mayor, while Raffensperger is a private businessman. Barrow is a former U.S. congressman from central Georgia.
