GA polls closed, voters deciding fate of several incumbents

Posted: Updated:

(AP) - The polls are officially closed in Georgia, and voters have decided the fate of several Republican congressional incumbents.
Democrats chose between three people seeking to challenge U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson in his bid for a third term.

Isakson faced two longshot primary opponents, but emerged the winner. 
Georgia's 9th and 11th Congressional districts are among the heated contests in Tuesday's elections. Incumbent Republican congressmen Doug Collins and Barry Loudermilk each have four primary challengers.
Republicans also are closely watching the state's 3rd Congressional District, where seven candidates are competing to replace retiring Rep. Lynn Westmoreland.
If no candidate in a race earns a majority of the votes on Tuesday, the top two go to a runoff in July 26th.
