Voters in Barrow County will play a key part in the Republican runoff between Jody Hice and Mike Collins in the race for the vacant 10th congressional district.
The two candidates survived a field, which started with seven, and now has been paired to two. The seat is vacant after Paul Broun ran (unsuccessfully) in the U.S. Senate primary.
Collins and Hice were in a virtual deadlock during the first round of voting. Hice took a first-place finish with 17,408 votes (33.5 percent) to 17,143 for Collins (32.99 percent).
