Newly Re-Drawn 9th And 10th District Results

Residents of northeast Georgia voted for the newly re-drawn 9th and the 10th congressional districts on Tuesday.

The heated race between state rep. Doug Collins of Gainesville and conservative talk show host Martha Zoller isn't over just yet.

Flagpole city editor Black Aued says neither Republican recieved more than 50 percent of the vote total--which means it moves to a run-off on August 21st:

"Collins is more of the establishment candidate and Zoller's more of the Tea Party candidate, and it was a very hard-fought, very contentious race that is now going to be going to a run-off and they're virtually tied going into that runoff, so it's going to be a good race."

The winner of the run-off faces off against Democrat Jody Cooley in November.

As for the 10th district incumbent Paul Broun, who was first elected in 2007, tops Steven Simpson by a large margin.
