SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Pooler pharmacist and Georgia Senator Buddy Carter is running to take the House seat Jack Kingston is leaving to make his bid for the senate.

Carter may also be facing a runoff with Jeff Chapman, a Georgia State Representative from Brunswick.

Carter is hoping to grab 51 percent of the vote to avoid a runoff in July.

"You know, we've got a shot at it," said Carter. "The reality is, anytime you've got six candidates in one race, it's very difficult, but we feel very good about where we're at."
