- Appeal brought by Republican incumbent’s husband after trial court dismissed challenge against Democratic challenger.
- Appellant counsel argue attorney Ryan C. Williams does not qualify as a substitute Democratic challenger under state qualifying provisions.
- Appellee counsel counter Williams’ name should remain on ballot since state law applies only to candidate qualifications and not process or eligibility challenges.
Attorney and Democractic candidate Ryan C. Williams’ quest to unseat 28-year Republican incumbent Douglas County Chief Magistrate Judge Susan S. Camp heated up Tuesday as an election challenge landed before the Supreme Court of Georgia.
At issue is whether a Georgia law regarding the qualification of candidates prevented a trial court from removing Williams’ name from the November 2022 general election ballot, despite determining it’d been illegally added following a candidate substitution.
