U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, R-Gainesville, reclaimed his 9th District congressional seat Tuesday after a scrappy primary fight with four GOP challengers. Facing no Democratic opposition in November, Collins is now set to win his third two-year term to the U.S. House, starting Jan. 1. “I’m humbled and honored to be entrusted again to represent the voice of this district,” he said.
