February 23 – Georgia’s 19th House District

Feb. 23 – Georgia’s 19th House District

As no Democrat has qualified for this race, voters who choose between 3 Republicans in this election will be choosing the successor to Republican Representative Glenn Richardson. A former State Speaker of the House, Richardson resigned after a suicide attempt and allegations of an affair with a lobbyist. He’d been the first Republican House speaker in Georgia since Reconstruction.

A runoff in this district is still possible if none of the three candidates receive over 50%. The district is contained in Paulding County and its largest city is Dallas. The candidates are Daniel Stout, a community banker, Jody Cash and Ronny Sibley. The first two are from Dallas while Sibley is from nearby Hiram.
