AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Unofficial results are showing Rick W. Allen is the Republican Party's chosen candidate to take on incumbent democratic Rep. John Barrow this fall.

The Associated Press shows that Allen defeated four other candidates in the Republican primary Tuesday to avoid a runoff in the 12th District.

Those unofficial returns showed Allen with 53.99 percent of the vote, with 18 of 19 precincts reporting.

Allen defeated former Washington aide John Stone of Augusta; Diane Vann, a nurse in Macon; state Rep. Delvis Dutton and former Senate candidate Eugene Yu.
