ATLANTA (AP) - Brian Prince, a retired veteran, is headed for a runoff with former municipal worker Diane Evans to represent District 127 in the Georgia state House.

Prince won about 44 percent of votes during Tuesday's special general election while Evans won about 29 percent. The Democratic candidates are vying to replace Quincy Murphy, who died in August. The district includes Jefferson and Richmond counties.

Efstration, a former prosecutor won about 38 percent of votes while Cantrell, a former Gwinnett County planning commissioner, won about 26 percent. The district covers parts of Gwinnett County and candidates are vying to replace Donna Sheldon, who's running for U.S. Congress.

Runoff elections are Dec. 3.
