Moore defeated Deffenbaugh by just 226 votes in the Republican Primary.

Colton says his budget was just $3,500 for his first race, about a tenth of his opponent’s.
He says he will be the youngest representative ever elected in the district.
Moore does not face a democrat in the general election so he wins the seat in the Georgia legislature.
