Secretary of State Election Results
Update 1: 8:30 p.m. – Cagle concedes
Update 2: Statement from Speaker Ralston:
“A long, hard-fought campaign for the Republican nomination for governor is now history.
Congratulations to Secretary of State Brian Kemp on a well-earned victory.
I want to also pay tribute to Lt. Governor Casey Cagle. Lt. Governor Cagle ran a tough and spirited campaign. His record of service to this party and state is exemplary and we all owe him and his family a debt of gratitude.
We have a strong, capable conservative leading the GOP ticket in Brian Kemp. I look forward to working with Secretary Kemp to unite our party and focus on winning the general election in November. For the sake of our children and their future, we must elect Brian Kemp as the 83rd Governor of the State of Georgia.”
