Incumbents in Georgia face primary opponents down the ballot

ATLANTA (AP) — Several of Georgia’s statewide officials are battling to keep their offices in down-ballot primary elections being decided Tuesday.

State Attorney General Chris Carr and Insurance Commissioner John King both face fellow Republicans endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

Trump is also backing one of four Republicans in the open race for lieutenant governor.

Meanwhile, Republican state school Superintendent Richard Woods is being opposed by his predecessor, John Barge.
