Republican Daniel Stout Wins Former Speaker's House Seat

Tuesday was election day in House District 19. Voters in the Paulding County-based district went to the polls to elect a new state representative to fill the unexpired term of former House Speaker Glenn Richardson.

Richardson resigned after it was revealed that he had an affair with a lobbyist while pushing legislation beneficial to the lobbyist's employer.

Three candidates were running:

J. Cash;
Ronny Sibley; and
Daniel Stout.

One candidate, Daniel Stout, walked away with nearly sixty percent of the vote thus avoiding a run-off.

Here are the unofficial results from the Secretary of State's office:
