Eddie DeLoach appears to avoid runoff in Republican primary for Chatham County Commission Chairman

The race to replace Pete Liakakis as Chatham County Commission Chairman might be down to two. I say “might” because things are still pretty tight on the Republican side.

Al Scott was running unopposed for the Democratic seat, so he’s a lock for the November election.

But the Republican side featured three candidates with a fair bit of name recognition and experience.

With 88 of 89 precincts reporting (and with the possibility of provisional or absentee ballots still to be included — I’m not sure), here’s the breakdown for the Republican nomination:

Eddie DeLoach 8686 51.33%
Billy Hair 4528 26.76%
Walter Crawford 3707 21.91%

If DeLoach stays above 50 percent, and it seems virtually certain that he will, he’ll face Al Scott in the fall.
