It was a good night for incumbents in Hall County and several statewide races. Many seats on the Republican side drew multiple candidates, including the U.S. House 9th District where three tried but failed to oust Andrew Clyde. With newly drawn state House districts and some politicians aiming their sights higher, other seats were left wide open. Here's how contested elections shaped up. Many will face Democratic challengers come this fall.
