Moore and Watson were the top finishers among six Democratic candidates in the Feb. 9 special election. Watson received about 28% of the 3,000 votes cast in the February election, with Moore getting almost 17%.
The runoff was needed because neither Watson nor Moore received a majority of the about 3,000 votes cast last month.
Moore has run unsuccessfully for office several times, most recently in 2015 when she was removed from the ballot in a special election for Senate District 43 after an investigation determined she did not live in the district.
Watson has had his fair share of scandal while in public office, including pleading guilty in 2017 to receiving about $3,000 in advances for government trips and using the money for personal purposes. Watson, who repaid the money before he was charged with a crime, was sentenced to 12 months of probation and 150 hours of community service for a misdemeanor count of theft by conversion.
The election was open only to Democrats because no Republican had qualified for the seat before the original 2020 election. The special election and runoff were held as a makeup for what would have been the November vote in District 90, which includes portions of DeKalb, Henry and Rockdale counties.
