ATLANTA — A prominent Democrat stronghold turned a bit red after last night’s runoff election.

Z-Politics is reporting Republican JaNice VanNess has won in the runoff for Senate District 43, defeating former Democrat State Representative Tonya Anderson, a Democrat on Tuesday.

The seat, which represents DeKalb, Rockdale, and Newton Counties, was previously held by Democrat Ronald Ramsey, opened when Governor Deal appointed him to a judgeship in DeKalb County.

“Tonight’s victory in Senate District 43 proves that Georgia Republicans can win anywhere,” Georgia GOP Chairman John Padgett said. “With a clear, convincing message, trained and equipped grassroots army, and unmatched determination and grit, the VanNess Campaign defied the odds to win in a historically left-leaning district. Congratulations to Senator-elect Janice VanNess and her entire campaign team on a well-deserved victory.”
