(THE HILL) -- A Republican candidate in Georgia’s gubernatorial race who ran a “Deportation Bus Tour” to the state’s "sanctuary cities" was defeated in the GOP primary Tuesday night.
State Sen. Michael Williams, who skipped out on running for reelection for his state seat in order to mount a gubernatorial bid, earned about 5 percent of the vote in the primary, according to The Associated Press.
Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and Secretary of State Brian Kemp came out on top out of the seven candidates competing in the GOP primary on Tuesday. The two men will advance to a July runoff for the Republican nomination.
