Gov. Nathan Deal is surrounded by the press Tuesday evening during the GOP election rally at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.

Incumbent Gov. Nathan Deal earned a second term in the governor's mansion Tuesday with a victory over Democratic challenger Jason Carter.

In the U.S. Senate race, Republican David Perdue defeated Democrat Michelle Nunn in the race to fill the seat held by retiring U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss.

Both Nunn and Carter conceded the race just after 11 p.m.

Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle also earned re-election, winning a third term with an overwhelming victory over Democrat Connie Stokes.

Some 56 percent of voters turned out in Hall County and went heavily for their favorite sons Deal (78 percent), Cagle (83 percent) and U.S. Rep. Doug Collins (82 percent). Perdue drew 76 percent in Hall.

In other Georgia U.S. House races, Jody Hice (10th District), Buddy Carter (1st District), Rob Woodall (7th District), Tom Price (6th District) and Sanford Bishop (2nd District) earned victories. Democrat John Barrow (12th District) was unseated by Republican Rick Allen. GOP candidates also held leads in other statewide races.

Nationwide, Republicans appear poised to gain control of the Senate and keep the majority in the House based on returns so far.
