24 year old Colton Moore upsets incumbent State Representative

TRENTON, Georgia (WDEF) – 24 year old newcomer Colton Moore has upset incumbent State Representative John Deffenbaugh.

District One represents Dade and Walker Counties.

Moore defeated Deffenbaugh by just 226 votes in the Republican Primary.

Colton says his budget was just $3,500 for his first race, about a tenth of his opponent’s.
He says he will be the youngest representative ever elected in the district.
Moore does not face a democrat in the general election so he wins the seat in the Georgia legislature.
