Republican Marc Morris has won a special election for a Georgia House seat in Forsyth County.
Voters elected Morris on Tuesday to take the place of Republican Rep. Geoff Duncan of Cumming. Duncan stepped down from his 26th District seat in August to focus on his 2018 campaign for lieutenant governor.
Two Republicans - Morris and Tina Trent - had entered the race along with Democrat Steve Smith.
The winner will serve the remaining year of Duncan's term, but the seat will be back on the ballot next year when all state House and Senate members must seek re-election in order to serve another two-year term.
