ATLANTA (AP) The Republican primary runoff for state school superintendent proved too close to call Tuesday night. <br />
Early, unofficial tallies showed longtime Irwin County educator Richard Woods with just over 50 percent of the vote against Michael Buck, the chief academic officer at the Georgia Department of Education. <br />
Just over 700 votes separated the two candidates, less than 1 percent of the ballots cast. <br />
State law allows a losing candidate to request a recount if the candidate trails by 1 percent or less. <br />
The winner of the Republican contest will face Democratic nominee Valarie Wilson in the November general election. Wilson was the former chair of the school board in Decatur.
