In Case You Missed It: Hardie Davis Elected To State Senate

In case you missed it, Tuesday was election day for voters in the 22nd state Senate district.

Former state Representative Hardie Davis faced off against Harold Jones in the run-off election for the state Senate seat once held by Ed Tarver who resigned last year to become U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Georgia.

The Augusta Chronicle reports that Davis beat Jones 5,801 votes to 4,655.

Davis told the Chroncile that he hopes to get sworn in quickly so that his district won't continue to lack representation in the state legislature [Edwards, Johnny (2010-2-3). Davis wins runoff for Senate seat. Augusta Chronicle. Retrieved on 2010-2-3.].

Oddly enough, the results of the first election held during the tenure of Secretary of State Brian Kemp aren't listed on the Secretary of State's website even though those same results can be found on the Augusta-Richmond County Board of Elections web page.
