ATLANTA — A special election has been called for November to fill a seat in the Georgia House of Representatives.
Gov. Nathan Deal on Thursday set the election for Nov. 7 to fill the seat vacated by Rep. Stacey Abrams, who resigned to focus on her gubernatorial campaign.
Abrams had represented the Atlanta-based House District 89 since 2006.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the race to replace Abrams has at least three people in the race: attorney Sachin Varghese, activist and operative Bee Nguyen and attorney Monique Keane.
