Not surprisingly, U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson ranked high as well. Despite two challengers in the GOP primary, Isakson, who took more than 77 percent of the vote, was fourth on the list with more than 446,000 votes.
The 55,000 votes U.S. Rep. Sanford Bishop, D-Albany, received were more than any other member of Congress. U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall, R-Lawrenceville, received 24,000 votes, the least of any sitting U.S. House member. Neither had primary opposition.
Among state lawmakers, Sen. Steve Gooch, R-Dahlonega, received 20,000 votes in a contested primary, the most of any legislator. On the House side, Rep. Mack Jackson, a Sandersville Democrat, received the most votes: 8,165. Jackson ran unopposed.
On the other side of the ledger, Sen. Curt Thompson, D-Tucker, was re-elected with just 1,195 votes. Thompson, who had a tumultuous year, ran unopposed. On the House side, Rep. Dewey McClain, D-Lawrenceville, won re-election with just 339 votes. Wow.
