The Governor's announcement followed Hank Huckaby's resignation from the Georgia House of Representatives on Friday.
The following is a news release from the Office of the Governor:
Gov. Nathan Deal today called a June 21 special election for House District 113, which includes all of Oconee County and portions of Oglethorpe, Clarke and Morgan counties.
