2016 Election Results
In the 2016 general election, there were virtually no surprises in Georgia. A majority of Georgians voted for Donald Trump as President; he also won the national election. Incumbent senator Johnny Isakson easily won re-election, as did all of the incumbent U.S. representatives running for re-election.
In the one highly contested issue in Georgia - the Opportunity School District - a move by the state to take over chronically failing schools (and championed by Governor Nathan Deal) was defeated.
