Monroe attorney Jeff Foster and Covington attorney Bob Stansfield are headed for a runoff in August. Despite leading the field until the Walton County mail-in and early votes came in, Henry County Chief Assistant District Attorney Chevada McCamy conceded that she is out after Walton County’s final numbers were announced. Stansfield managed to edge her out of the runoff after he took a total of 5,611 of the votes in Walton County to McCamy’s 3,917. Foster managed to pull in 11,007 votes in Walton County.
“Thank you to all of my volunteers, donors, the campaign team, and especially my family,” McCamy said. “We ran a strong race in two counties for Superior Court judge and the results have stayed very close. While we are disappointed with the outcome, we are grateful for the support and excited to see so many of our community members who want to see fairness and experience in their court system. I will continue to serve this community that I am proud to call my home.”
With a total in both counties of 17,243 votes, Foster garnered 37.32% of the vote, with 14,740 votes, Stanfield took 31.90% and just 517 votes behind him, with 14,223 votes McCamy got 30.78% and was knocked out of the runoff.
Foster and Stansfield have two months to campaign before facing off again in the runoff on Aug. 11, 2020.
