McCormick, a Marine Corps veteran, received support from the powerful Club For Growth political committee. And he withstood attacks that he wasn’t as conservative as he portrayed himself to be during his campaigns.
McCormick and Evans were always considered the top candidates in the race. The other GOP contestants were Byron Gatewood, former state Rep. Meagan Hanson, Blake Harbin, Paulette Smith, Mallory Staples, Suzi Voyles and Eugene Yu.
The 6th District includes east Cobb County, part of Cherokee County, north Fulton County and all of Dawson and Forsyth counties.
There is a Democratic primary with two candidates, but that race had not been called as of press time.
