Republicans win in 3 Ga. special elections

ATLANTA (AP) - Republicans were victorious in all three special elections for seats in the state House and Senate.

In the 11th state Senate district - spanning areas of southwest Georgia - Republican Dean Burke won 58% of votes over Republican Mike Keown's 41.

In the 21st state House of Representatives district - which spans part of Cherokee County in north Georgia - Republican Scot Turner won 61% of votes over Republican Brian Laurens who won 38%.

The six-way race for the 71st state House of Representatives district - in Coweta County- featured five Republicans and a Democrat. Republican David Stover won 42% of votes and Republican Thomas Crymes placed a distant second with just under 20% of the votes.

Tuesday night's unofficial results don't include provisional ballots.
