In the Georgia race, Mike Collins defeated Trump supporter Vernon Jones

Story Highlights

  • Georgia’s 10th District heavily favors Republicans, meaning Collins’s win puts him on track to easily win the seat in November. Collins’s win is only the latest blow to Trump’s endorsing power in Georgia. The former president threw his support behind several Republican challengers ahead of the June 24 primaries but notched few victories. Of particular note was Kemp’s victory in the GOP gubernatorial primary. Trump had endorsed former Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) in the race, but Kemp easily won renomination.
