US Rep. Graves advances in 14th District primary

ATLANTA (AP) - The general election ballot for Georgia's 14th Congressional District is set after two uncontested party primaries.

Freshman Rep. Tom Graves, a Republican from Ranger, will carry his party's banner in the fall. He will be a heavy favorite over little-known Democrat Daniel "Danny" Grant, an electrician from Fort Oglethorpe.

Graves' district was redrawn after the state picked up a 14th House seat following the 2010 census.

Graves was first elected in a special election two years ago to represent the 9th District, but state lawmakers decided to replace that district with the new seat.

The 14th District combines the western portion of Graves' current district and parts of the 11th District. The 14th District boundaries include Dalton, Rome, Dallas and Cedartown.
