State Senate Candidate Disqualified From Primary
" ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) -  Georgia’s secretary of state has decided that a candidate running unopposed in Tuesday’s Republican primary does not meet residency requirements for the state senate race.

Secretary of State Brian Kemp on Tuesday morning issued the decision regarding candidate Benjamin Brooks in Senate District 35. The district includes parts of Fulton and Douglas counties southwest of Atlanta.

Kemp said that because there’s no time to strike Brooks’ name from ballots, notices would be placed at polling sites in the district advising voters of the disqualification. Kemp said any votes cast for Brooks would be void and not counted.

Georgia Republican Party spokesman Chris Kelleher said the GOP will not be able to replace Brooks, meaning there will not be a Republican candidate in the general election in state Senate District 35. "
