ATLANTA — Former Gwinnett County prosecutor Chuck Efstration will fill the District 104 seat in the Georgia House of Representatives.

Efstration won about 64 percent of votes over fellow Republican, Teresa Cantrell, former Gwinnett County planning commissioner.

District 104 in the state House covers a portion of Gwinnett County.

Efstration and Cantrell were vying to replace Republican Donna Sheldon, who’s running for U.S. Congress.

District 104 was one of three state legislative races being decided Tuesday.

Northwest Georgia insurance agent and entrepreneur, Bruce Thompson, will represent district 14 in the state Senate. District 14 covers parts of Cobb, Cherokee and Bartow Counties.

Retired Army Lieutenant Brian Prince was elected to represent District 127 in the Georgia House of Representatives. District 127 covers parts of Richmond and Jefferson counties in the Augusta area.
