When U.S. Rep. Jody Hice decided to run for Georgia secretary of state instead of seeking another term in Congress, he created an open seat in the 10th Congressional District.

The district remains a conservative stronghold in east-central Georgia, including all or parts of 18 counties. Trucking company owner Mike Collins, who beat Vernon Jones in the Republican runoff, is the heavy favorite in the November general election.

Former President Donald Trump had endorsed Jones, a onetime Democrat who decided to run for Congress in the district after being pressured to bow out of the governor’s race to make room for former U.S. Sen. David Perdue.

Tabitha Johnson-Green defeated Jessica Allison Fore in the runoff for the Democratic nomination. But the Republican tilt of the district means that the GOP primary is likely to determine who occupies the seat in January.
