Jackson County Republican voters did their part to help former Dollar General CEO David Perdue win the GOP Senate nomination Tuesday.
Perdue carried Jackson County 2,408-1,657 over longtime Savannah congressman Jack Kingston. He will face Democrat Michelle Nunn in the Nov. 4 general election to fill the seat being vacated by the retiring Saxby Chambliss.
Meanwhile, Richard L. Woods carried Jackson County in the GOP race for state school superintendent, 1,884-1,664 over Michael L. Book. Statewide, Woods was leading Book by a slight margin, raising the likelihood of a recount.
In the only Democratic race, Valarie D. Wilson beat Alisha Thomas Morgan 69-54 in Jackson County on her way to winning the Democratic nomination for state school superintendent.
Voter turnout was 13.83 percent.
