MACON, Ga. -- Dale Washburn and Gary Bechtel face a run off for the State Rep District 141 seat election.
The men are vying to represent Bibb and Monroe counties in the Georgia General Assembly. One will replace Allen Peake -- who is not running for re-election -- in November.
Here are the full results:
- Dale Washburn --34%
- Gary Bechtel -- 27%
- Todd Tolbert -- 22%

Rep. Peake pushed hard to help patients get access to medical cannabis oil.
This legislative session, he sponsored two medical cannabis bills that Governor Nathan Deal signed into law.
In the days leading up to the election, all four candidates say they think patients who benefit from the oil should have access to it and will continue pushing forward.
