GOVERNOR'S RACE, REPUBLICAN: Baldwin County voted for incumbent Brian Kemp 3.8 percentage higher than the statewide average. Kemp clobbered challenger David Perdue in what was a tight race a mere two months ago.

SECRETARY OF STATE, DEMOCRAT: Floyd Griffin's long shot run at Secretary of State culminated with a fourth-place finish. Griffin missed earning a spot in next month's runoff by roughly 8 percentage points. Here in Baldwin County, however, Griffin put up big numbers.

UNITED STATES SENATE, REPUBLICAN: Herschel Walker ran through his competition as if they were the Vanderbilt Commodores' defense. Walker carried Baldwin County with 79.5 percent, more than 10 percentage points higher than the statewide average. Walker grew up two counties away over in Wrightsville.

LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR, REPUBLICAN: Burt Jones, who currently is Baldwin County's State Senator, appears to have won the GOP primary outright and will avoid a runoff by a razor-thin margin. Jones can partially thank Baldwin County for this, where he polled nearly 23 percentage points above his statewide total of 50.1 percent.

SECRETARY OF STATE, REPUBLICAN: Jody Hice, who currently is Baldwin County's Congressman, was defeated by incumbent Brad Raffensberger in a result that many pundits didn't see coming. Hice has received strong support from the Baldwin County Republican Party in recent months and polled well ahead here in Baldwin County.
