While the nation was on standby much of Tuesday night waiting to see who would lead the country for the next four years, Bryan County voters made it clear they wanted Republican candidate Mitt Romney to take the country’s top position.
And Romney wasn’t the only Republican to win Bryan County’s votes. According to unofficial results, the Republican candidates for Congress, the state House and Senate as well as other local races received the majority vote here.

Of the county’s 19,513 registered voters, 13,475 ballots were cast — making for a strong turnout of nearly 70 percent.

The following results are considered unofficial until they are certified by the Georgia Secretary of State:

Congress
Incumbent Rep. Jack Kingston of Savannah defeated Democratic challenger Lesli Rae Messinger, also of Savannah. Kingston received 76.8 percent of votes in Bryan County, while Messinger received 23 percent.

State
Receiving 71 percent of votes, House District 160 incumbent Rep. Jan Tankersley, R-Brooklet, looked to beat out Democratic challenger Marc Silver, who garnered 28.8 percent. In the race for House District 164, incumbent Rep. Ron Stephens, R-Savannah, received 69.7 percent of votes, topped Democratic challenger Lauren Craddock of Richmond Hill who received 30 percent of votes.

Other races
Other races in Bryan County, including House District 166; Board of Commissioners Chairman and District 3; Board of Education District 3 and Vice Chairman; and several constitutional offices including clerk of court, sheriff and probate judge, were uncontested.
