Stoner, Hill Face Off in Tight Race
Longtime Georgia Senate Democrat Doug Stoner competes against Republican newcomer Hunter Hill for the District 6 State Senate seat in Tuesday's election.
The Senate disctrict was redrawn last year, and now stretches from Smyrna-Vinings through Sandy Springs into Buckhead. Republicans make up 55 percent of the current district.
Stoner, a Kennesaw State graduate and a longtime Senate Democrat first elected in 2002, has been a favorite among prominent business leaders in Metro Atlanta.
Hill, a Vinings resident and a West Point grad, ran against Stoner in 2008 and beat out other Republican candidates Josh Belinfante and Drew Ellenburg in the 2012 primary, with 52.26-percent of 8,956 total votes.
