Runoff election for Georgia State Senate District 54
Dalton, Georgia (WDEF) — Voters in Whitfield, Murray, Gordon, and Pickens county are casting their ballots tonight in the run-off election.
Former Whitfield County Republican Party Chairman Chuck pain is facing off against former Whitfield County Board of commissioners member Debbie Peppers.
They were the top two finishers in a five-candidate special election that took place back in December.
In that election, Payne finished with around 36% of the vote followed by Peppers with roughly 27%, resulting in tonight’s run-off.
The polls close tonight at 7, and the next state senator from District 54 will be announced.
