Josh Pipkin conceded the race to Moore late Tuesday night, and shared a post on his campaign Facebook page.
“We live in the greatest community in this state and I believe the healing process has already begun,” Pipkin said. “This has been a very tough campaign. Our community and the Republican Party now need to come together in support of Representative Barry Moore and help him to make Coffee County a better place. I wish Representative Moore and his family the best. Congratulations Barry!”
Moore has no opposition in the November general election, but still has to battle the federal indictments in an upcoming trial. The trial could possibly affect the future of the seat, but only if Moore is found guilty.
Barry Moore – 3,901 votes
Josh Pipkin – 3,136 votes
TOTAL – 7,037
