Macon Mayor Robert Reichert beat former Mayor Jack Ellis in a runoff election Tuesday.

The race was close with Reichert getting just 51 percent of ballots cast.

With no Republican on the November ballot Reichert will serve a second term in office.

The runoff election also included a race for Senate District 26.

Miriam Paris will be the new senator beating former State Representative David Lucas. Election results still have to be certified by the state before they are official.
