After a five-way primary race, House 92 will go into an Aug. 21 runoff between the two top vote-getters, Tonya Anderson (25 percent, 1,088 votes) and Doreen Williams (24 percent, 1,061 votes).
The newly drawn District 92 has no incumbent.
Williams, an educator for 30 years, said in a statement, “I just want to thank all of my dedicated supporters for getting us here, without them, a runoff wouldn’t be possible,” said Dr. Williams. “Now is the time to mobilize, get motivated, and get ready to win on Aug. 21.”
Anderson, a former Lithonia mayor, said in an email that she was excited about the runoff. “I feel like my campaign has a lot of momentum. I entered the race just before qualifying ended and hoped that voters would accept the timing of my decision... This campaign is simply about principles. I believe we can fully fund public education, create jobs and improve the quality of life for our veterans.”
