A failed Democrat who became a Republican in order to faithfully serve Donald Trump got trounced on Tuesday in a runoff election for Congress in Georgia, delivering the latest loss to a candidate who was endorsed by the former president.
Vernon Jones, whose divisive rhetoric invited accusations of racism from both Black and white people, lost in a lopsided election to Mike Collins, who the Associated Press projected to advance to the general election in November as the Republican nominee.
As of 8 p.m. local time on Tuesday night, “Vernon Jones is garnering 22% of the vote so far. Collins 78%. (with 29% reported),” New York Times national political reporter Shane Goldmacher tweeted.
Collins’ decisive victory pretty much ruled out that Jones, who blindly ascribes to “the big lie” conspiracy theory, will demand a recount.
This is a developing story that will be updated as additional information becomes available.
