Elections Superintendent Todd Blackwell released some early election results around 7:30 p.m. at the Carrington Woods annex.
The results consisted of all early votes, all absentee ballots, as well as the North Milledgeville precinct.
Brian Kemp is putting up huge numbers in the Republican primary here in Baldwin County, garnering roughly 80 percent of the recorded votes so far in Baldwin. David Perdue, meanwhile, so far has received 413 votes, or 17 percent. Kandiss Taylor, meanwhile, so far has received 2.5 percent of the local vote.
Despite Perdue's stumbles, it's still been more good news than bad for the "Trump candidates." Secretary of State challenger Jody Hice, who is Baldwin County's current Congressman, has 62.5 percent of the vote so far in Baldwin County in the GOP primary, which compares to 33.3 percent for incumbent Brad Raffensberger.
Also, Burt Jones, the Trump candidate for lieutenant governor, so far has received 73 percent of the vote in Baldwin County.
In the District 25 GOP State Senate race, Milledgeville guy Rick Williams so far has 2,038 local votes, compared to 287 for Rick Jeffares. Williams needs to put up really big numbers in his hometown to overtake Jeffares, who has greater name recognition in most of the other counties in the district,.
