(GA-10) Congressional runoff expected to pit Broun v. Whitehead (both Republicans) ^ | 6/20/07

ATLANTA (AP) - Republican Paul Broun emerged today as Jim Whitehead's likely runoff challenger in the Tenth congressional district.

Democrat James Marlow, who trailed Broun by just 187 votes in the race for second place, issued a statement saying had congratulated the two Republicans.

But Marlow, an Internet businessman from Lincolnton, stopped short of conceding. He said his campaign will watch the final returns come in.

Military and overseas ballot must arrive by Friday to be counted in the race. The secretary of state must then certify the results within 14 days. If Marlow trails Broun by a margin of 1% or less he could request a recount.

Whitehead, a former state senator from Evans, led the pack of 10 candidates with 44% of the 54,000 votes cast. But he fell short of the more than 50% needed to win the race.

The runoff to replace the late US Representative Charlie Norwood is scheduled for July 17th.
