A good night for Democrats in Georgia special elections (part 3)

Although at first glance it doesn't look to be the case here.


Georgia Democrats pick up three legislative seats in special elections.  (Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 11/7/2017)
And in the Atlanta area, Democrats Jaha Howard and Jen Jordan topped the field of eight in the race to replace former Sen. Hunter Hill with about half of the votes tallied as of midnight. Hill, a Smyrna Republican who resigned from the Senate to run for governor, flipped the newly redrawn district in 2012. Howard, a pediatric dentist, and Jordan, an attorney, will face each other Dec. 5 in a runoff election.

Georgia has open primaries, i.e., in this case, the top 2 vote-getters, both Democrats, move on to a runoff election.
