(WTXL) — The Republican party has a candidate in the race for Georgia’s United States second congressional district.

According to the Associated Press, Chris West is the projected winner of the Republican primary runoff.

West (51.33%) unofficially leads Jeremy Hunt (48.67%) by 755 votes in the Republican primary runoff election Tuesday.

The Georgia Secretary of State website notes 100% of the precincts and counties were reporting just before 10:30 p.m., but results may not include absentee or provisional ballots.

West will face Democratic incumbent congressman Sanford Bishop in the general election this fall.

West and Hunt were the top two vote earners during the May 24 Republican primary that featured six candidates.

Since no candidate earned 50% of the vote, a runoff was initiated between Hunt and West.
