Bee Nguyen will face Brad Raffensperger in race for Georgia Secretary of State in November

Georgia state Rep. Bee Nguyen will win the Democratic nomination for secretary of state, the Associated Press projects. The unofficial results of Tuesday’s primary runoff show Nguyen 57 points ahead of her Democratic challenger, former state representative Dee Dawkins-Haigler. Nguyen will face Republican incumbent Brad Raffensperger in the general election this fall.

Nguyen and Dawkins-Haigler advanced to the runoff after both fell short of the majority required under state law to win the May 24 primary outright.

Nguyen, considered a rising star in Democratic circles, was endorsed by Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. The daughter of Vietnamese refugees, Nguyen (whose last name is pronounced “win”) would become the first Asian American elected to a statewide political office in Georgia if she defeats Raffensperger in November.
