ATLANTA (AP) – State Rep. Bee Nguyen will be the Democratic candidate for Georgia secretary of state in November.

Nguyen beat former state Rep. Dee Dawkins-Haigler in a primary runoff election.

Nguyen has served in the state House since winning a 2017 special election to succeed Stacey Abrams in a district that includes parts of DeKalb County just east of the Fulton County line and some parts of the city of Atlanta.

Nguyen is also a vice chair of the state Democratic party.

Abrams endorsed Nguyen in the runoff and is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor after narrowly losing the election to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp in 2018.
