GOP Secretary of State nominee Brad Raffensperger, a state Representative, defeated former Congressman John Barrow (D) in the statewide run-off campaign by a 52-48% margin on Tuesday night. The secondary election was necessitated when Raffensperger failed to reach the 50% plateau, missing by less than one percentage point, in the general election. In Georgia, candidates placing first with a plurality must advance to a general election run-off election. A total turnout of 1.454 million voters participated, just over 1/3 of the November 6th participation total that recorded over 3.9 million cast ballots.
