Shawn Still looks to have won the Republican Primary for State Senate District 48, beating Republican opponent Kevin Grindlay by 58.33% of the 6,888 ballots cast in Forsyth County the General Primary and Nonpartisan General Election on Tuesday, May 24. 

As of 3 p.m. on Wednesday, May 25, Still was ahead in the state with 56.87% of 18,627 ballots cast, with Grindlay at 43.13% and 97% of precincts reporting.

Still is the president of Olympic Pool Plastering & Shotcrete and has served as chairman of the Georgia Republican Party Finance Committee, served on the Executive Committee for the GAGOP, the Board of Directors for the GAGOP and is a member of the Fulton GOP Chairman's Circle.

He is a resident of Johns Creek and will be representing Forsyth, Gwinnett and Fulton counties. 

“I cannot thank everyone enough for their support, their work, and their vote,” Still said in a post. “If you knocked doors, made phone calls, put out yard signs, or supported me at an event, you are the reason that I am here. Thank you to my team for working hard to get me through the finish line. Let’s do it again in November.”

Still aims to fight for election integrity, eliminate the Georgia income tax and oppose the "Defund the Police" movement and Critical Race Theory being taught in schools. 

Still will face Democrat Josh Uddin in the Nov. 8 election.
