Widow and banker go to runoff for Georgia House seat of ex-speaker Ralston

The widow of former Georgia House Speaker David Ralston and a Blue Ridge banker will face off in a Jan. 31 runoff after none of five Republicans won a majority in a special election Tuesday to fill Ralston’s seat in House District 7. The seat covers Fannin and Gilmer counties, and part of Dawson County in north Georgia.
