Woods and Democrat Valarie Wilson vied for the seat being vacated by John Barge, who unsuccessfully challenged Gov. Nathan Deal for his job in the May primary.

With 152 of 159 counties reporting at 11:50 p.m., Woods had 1,326,659 votes, or 57 percent of the vote, and Wilson had 1,011,520 votes, or 43 percent.
