GEORGIA - Democratic U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson has won re-election to his seat in metro Atlanta.
Johnson of Lithonia defeated Republican Joe Profit in Tuesday's midterm election showdown for control of Congress. Johnson's victory means he'll return to Washington for a seventh term representing Georgia's 4th District.
The district covers portions of DeKalb, Gwinnett, Newton and Rockdale counties in metro Atlanta. Johnson has held the seat since 2007.
Profit is a GOP businessman and former Atlanta Falcons running back.
